Argo at the Seoul International Book Fair

Leading Czech publishing house Argo takes part at Seoul International Book Fair, June 19-23, 2013.

As a first Czech publishing house, Argo - in a cooperation with LTI of Korea - is to start publishing a series of translations of modern and contemporary Korean literature in Czech.

 Established soon after the fall of the communist regime, Argo was celebrating its 20th anniversary last year. Having published almost 2,000 titles since 1992, Argo has become a major Czech publisher; it is renowned for its vast list of literary fiction, nonfiction and poetry, as well as trade and mass market fiction. Among his authors, you can find Haruki Murakami, Paulo Coelho, Robert Fulghum, Umberto Eco or Cormac McCarthy , but also Czech bestselling writers, such as Miloš Urban, whose first translation into Korean is forthcoming. Argo books have won extraordinary acclaim over the years, including numerous literary awards, both Czech and international; due to our books’ success and quality, Argo has become the  trend-setter and the market leader in the Czech Republic, combining literary excellence with commercial success.

 Visit the joint stand of Argo with Czech Centre Seoul and Embassy of the Czech Republic at SIBF.
