||A BRIEF PROFILE OF OUR COMPANY
Dekel publishing House was established in 1975, initially as an academic publisher for university students, and within a few years it became one of the leading publishing companies in the Israeli academic world.
In the early eighties, when the publication of non-academic titles was considered, the company was reorganized accordingly, and presently consists of three imprints: Dekel Academic Press specializes in university texts and other professional publications written by prominent experts; Tamar Books deals with hobbies and recreational activities, everyday health care and exotic cookery; and Duvdevan, the relatively new offspring, focuses on fiction: books for children and young adults, as well as hair-raising thrillers.
In the nineties, Dekel began its first forays onto the international publishing scene, taking part in most of the Frankfurt Book Fairs, many of the Book Expo America,á the Jerusalem Book Fairs, as well asáthe London Book Fairs, and the Salon du Livre in Paris.
Generally, Dekel offers for sale for overseas houses the rights of some of its titles, mostly non-fiction,áwhich were translated into English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Dutch, Hungarian, Czech, Polish, Japanese (and other languages), as well as packages upon request co-published editions,ámaintainingáprofessional communication with publishers, editors,áand literary agencies worldwide.
