The Wedding written by Nurit Zarchi Watercolours
G: Of course the greatest difference between your books and ours is that yours read from right to left which feels very strange to us.
N: Yes, we read and write from right to left, and in a way, I guess we also “illustrate from right to left” - this is something that is done in an unconscious way, just as you probably “illustrate from left to right” - when a character leaves his home and go on a journey, he would walk from right to left, in a Hebrew book (and probably the other way, in an English book). So when translating a book into English, we would sometimes flip the illustrations as well.
I have another question: Israel is a much smaller country than the UK, what impact does this have on your children’s publishing industry?
G: I’d love to hear more about your publishing company and the physical books you publish - I'll devote another post to your apps.
