Circumference Books

Circumference Books is a press for poetry in translation. Our books highlight the process of translation and how that work is rooted in collaboration. Each multi-lingual project will foreground original design solutions, making visual the relationships between languages, cultures, writers, and translators.

Circumference Books supports the creative and urgent work of bridging cultures and languages. Our projects spotlight non-national languages and foster cross-linguistic poetic exchange.

We’re happy to announce that Tell Me, Kenyalang: The Selected Poems of Kulleh Grasi, translated by Pauline Fan from Malay and Iban is now available!.

And our first book, Camouflage by Lupe Gómez, translated from Galician by Erín Moure is still on sale!

You can read a piece about us in the January/February 2019 issue of Poets & Writers magazine!
