Earlier this year I got an email from Search Press, the publisher for my book Mandalas to Embroider. A German version of the book was in the works! Very exciting! It was translated to Japanese in 2018 and now German! And this is a language I actually understand, so now I can read the German version and learn embroidery related words in German. From my own book! Being an embroidery book author is WILD! :-D
The title is slightly different in German: Farbenfrohe Mandalas Sticken which means something like ‘Embroider Colourful Mandalas’. And interestingly they changed the photo on the cover. But the content is the same and this version also has iron-on transfers. :-)
Anyway, as far as I know, the German version will be published early next year, February I think. But with supply chains still being a bit iffy what with covid and everything, it may be a bit later.
I will not be stocking the German version in general but I received a few author copies the other week and I have put them in my shop. So if you would like a signed copy of the German version, you can find it here. And of course you’ll receive it before it’s officially published, fun! If you live in Germany, or elsewhere outside the UK, we have unfortunately gone past the deadline where I could guarantee delivery by Christmas. But Early-January-Present also has a certain ring to it, no?! :-D
P.S. If you’d like a bog standard English version of Mandalas to Embroider with my signature, you can find it here. :-)
