Why Mexico is the New El Dorado for Spanish Publishing
Founded more than 40 years ago, Turner Libros is a well-known publisher of trade art books in Mexico, often working in collaboration with galleries and museums to offer exhibition catalogs for exhibitions, translations and artists monographs. Turner is also known for collections of essays, primarily covering music, history science, and has recently entered the fiction (with several translations from the Arabic), as well as the graphic novel and children’s book market.
The company, which is based in both Madrid and Mexico City (with a partner in Santiago de Chile), was awarded the Best Cultural Publisher in Spain in 2013 by fellow publishers and critics, and based both in Madrid and Mexico City. “We have published books by/on many Mexican artists and are the editors, along with el Colegio de México, Colmex,” says Diana Hernández Aldana, Senior Editor at Turner Libros.
