V&Q Books is the English-language imprint of one of Germany’s most exciting independent publishing houses, Voland & Quist. Headed by renowned translator Katy Derbyshire, V&Q Books launched its first titles in autumn 2020, focusing distribution on the UK and Ireland, and publishes up to 5 to 6 books per year. V&Q Books publishes commercial and literary fiction and narrative non-fiction showcasing remarkable writing from Germany. Much of the writing is translated from German, as well as from other languages written within the country, and we hope to champion English-language writing produced in Germany. Our books are published as high-quality B-format paperbacks and distributed in the UK and Ireland by Ingram Publishing Services via Inpress Books.
