ABOUT

VigeVageKnjige is an independent Slovenian publishing house specialised in comic books for children and graphic novels for young adults and adults.
Created in 2012 and registered in October 2013 we published our first book at the end of 2014. Four years later, by the end of 2018, we have put out 19 titles 3 of which are sold out and 6 of which we have already reprinted.

From the beginning we have been working successfully with foundations from abroad (Norla, Traduki, Kulturradet, Institut français de Slovénie), and in 2018, for the first time, we acquired partial co-financing from the Slovenian Book Agency. We are planning 8 new editions for 2019.

The basic goal of VigeVageKnjige is threefold: (1) publishing books, (2) improving reading literacy among younger and older population in Slovenia and (3) raising awareness of a graphic novel as a literary genre; the latter requires broadening of reader base in Slovenia. We therefore aim to present our novelties in innovative ways and in a manner of tailor-made book release events. Each year we invite at least one author or guest from abroad and we are a part of the team organising the Slovene comics festival Tinta.

The selection of our translations is diverse; we mainly stay within the field of indie graphic novels but do not limit ourselves by it. So far we have only been publishing translations, but in 2019 - for the first time and hoping to make it a common practice in the future - we will publish a book by two Slovenian (female) authors.
