Book Covers for Beletrina: Private View and Literary Event

Posted in Exhibitions by andrejabrulc on 05/10/2010

A literary event took place at the Dreamspace Gallery in London on 4 October 2010 in conjunction with the exhibition opening of book covers and illustrations by Andreja Brulc. The covers were created since 2007 for Beletrina, a major literary imprint of the Slovene publisher Beletrina Academic Press.

Readings were held by a writer and film director Goran Vojnović, the author of the region’s bestselling novel in 2009, entitled Čefurji Raus! (trans. Southern Scum Go Home), and an essayist and poet Aleš Šteger, the recipient of numerous prestigious awards and scholarships, whose work has been translated into more than a dozen languages. DSC_0066

The project, sponsored by the government of the Republic of Slovenia, presented the publisher’s prolific literary activities for the first time in London through the display of selected book covers showing the unique relationship with their principal designer and illustrator.
