‘If magic is sometimes very close to nothing at all, it might be indeed possible to mistake one for the other. No wonder language found its origin in myths. This summer reader is about the cup of coffee that keeps us awake every morning. How much of it has to do with caffeine and how much of it with our will to believe in rituals? Amen’.

Translation in the Dark. Part 1 “I Won’t Be Born”
Designer: Amir Avraham
Format: 125 x 175 mm mm
Price: € 10,00
The first issue in the series TRANSLATION IN THE DARK features the first and only translation from Amharic into English of selections of Ethiopian novelist Abe Gubegna’s seminal novel “I Won’t Be Born” (1962). Part 1 also proudly features a new translation (Amharic into English) of poetry by contemporary Ethiopian artist and poet Mihret Kebede. As a series, TRANSLATION IN THE DARK embarks on a mission to employ unorthodox translation methods with the intention of honoring the misunderstandings, mishearings, missed translations, and misinterpretations that multiply and deepen meaning. As a fundamental part of this aim, the series offers a method for the redistribution of roles of author, translator, publisher, editor and reader.
