Color Collage - Tammi’s Yellow Library



I’ll talk about books - again! The reason is that I’m short of posting ideas and while I made this Color Collage on Sunday I thought to tell you a bit more. Tammi's Yellow Library is celebrating its 65th anniversary this year. This series of translated fiction includes 28 Nobel Prize winners and so far 495 titles overall. 

Of course there are many Finnish publishers who publish translated fiction. But Tammi’s Yellow Library is the only widely known literary series in Finland. Twenty-eight Nobel Prize winners have been published in the Yellow Library, among them William Faulkner, Toni Morrison, Alice Munro, Orhan Pamuk, José Saramago and Tomas Tranströmer.

Tammi Publishers was established in 1943, in the middle of World War II, to open new vistas into the wider world. The founding principle was to offer fresh ideas and differing views via translated fiction. Since its foundation, Tammi Publishers has provided the Finnish market with high-quality Finnish and translated literature and narrative non-fiction.

The list is in Finnish, but maybe you are interested in looking at the writer names.

  11. A really interesting post. I do enjoy reading about other countries. I was in Helsinki in 2017 on a cruise and loved it there but it was not long enough, only the tourist highlights. Thanks for your photos.
