VIJAYAWADA: Visaalandhra Publishing House (VPH) will publish Telugu translation works of noted Bengali writer Sarat in 10 volumes by March 2006. Plans are afoot to publish 100 titles including novels, poetry and monographs by the end of this year.
Addressing a press conference here on Saturday, publishing house manager P. Rajeswara Rao said that they were keen on reprinting the classics in Telugu literature, for which there was a demand in the market. Technology like desktop publishing was helping publishers complete their work with ease.
The time for publishing a book had been reduced to a few days from months, he observed. Stating that the impact of electronic media was diminutive on publication market, Mr. Rao said that people wanted to read what they were not getting from television.
"Compared to the contemporary literature, classics are in demand now. We are giving priority to reprint the works of noted writers like Gurajada Appa Rao and Sripada Subramanya Sastry. Young generation prefers to read books on personality development," he said.
Stating that the publishing house was encouraging new writers, Mr. Rao said that they were conducting writers conferences across the State and were seeking feedback from writers and book lovers on latest publications. The publishing house had nine showrooms across the State.
