Fitzcarraldo Editions is an independent publisher specialising in contemporary fiction and long-form essays. Founded in 2014, it focuses on ambitious, imaginative and innovative writing, both in translation and in the English language. The series, designed by Ray O’Meara, are published as paperback originals with French flaps, using a custom serif typeface (called Fitzcarraldo). Fitzcarraldo Editions publishes, among other authors, 2015 Nobel Prize in Literature laureate Svetlana Alexievich, and 2018 Man Booker International Prize-winner Olga Tokarczuk.
‘Fitzcarraldo Editions is probably the most exciting publishing house in the UK right now.’
— Stuart Evers, New Statesman
