I just signed a deal with a Korean publisher to have my book translated into Korean and sold worldwide in that language. Interesting that Korean would be the first foreign language edition of The Mad Art of Caricature, as opposed to Spanish or Mandarin, which you would think has a much larger potential selling market. I had a Spanish publisher inquire about rights once but the deal went nowhere. No other foreign language publishers have shown any interest.
The above image is just a mock-up I did for this post… the actual Korean cover will no doubt be different (and accurate in the translation… that’s a “Google translate” hackjob). I will be able to approve the translation prior to production… like I’m going to be any help.
I will get a few copies once it’s done and in print… it will be pretty fun to see the book in another language. It will probably be 6 to 8 months before the Korean edition is actually available to purchase.
