||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, the Jerusalem Book Fairs, as well as the 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, which 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, maintaining professional communication with publishers, editors, and literary agencies worldwide.
Despite its dynamic activity, Dekel is basically a small, family-owned firm (Managing Director: Mr. Zvi Morik email: email@example.com; President: Ms. Dussia Morik), which quite often operates as a pioneer on the Israeli publishing market in promoting new subjects and revealing hitherto unknown areas to the local public. Being very well connected with the Israeli academic world through many of its authors and advisors, Dekel enjoys a reservoir of esteemed professionals and intellectuals who can be consulted on developing new titles.
The distribution system of its varied titles is mainly based on sales through hundreds of bookstores all over the country, as well as chain stores (such as Steimatzky and Tzomet Sfarim). In addition, direct mailing, telemarketing, web-marketing and regional distributing are often used to reach specific markets.
Having moved in 1995 from the suburbs to the convenient vicinity of Dizengoff Street (which is sometimes referred to as "the Israeli Picadilly") while keeping its jaffa warehouse, the company now has convenient facilities to meet its authors and serve its clients directly on these premises.
