Take Take Take
The publishing house was created with enthusiasm for the quality of graphic books, the fascination with the simplicity of book envelopes from the past, and the disappointment over the approach to the books of many contemporary publishers. Take Take Take does not consider a book as a commodity that has to make the most difference between cost and revenue. How the book will be edited graphically, what format, binding, and paper the font will fit best for the envelope and which the book will be planted for, if the text fits the illustration, and who should create it is just as important as the content itself books.

At Baldur you can admire the novelty: The Illustrated Constitution of the Czech Republic.

Vršovice 2016

Founded in Vršovice in 2016 by Vratislav Brabence and Richard Pecha. Brabenec, when he does not have a saxophone with Plastikama, he writes poems and some of the prose. Not connected to the network, the phone is switched off for most of the time, and communication with its publisher has been banned. As a result, he usually approached beside Pechu and was sitting there. After the first publishing event (Unsolicited contribution), the team was complemented by Babeta Ondrová, graphic designer and designer. Vršovice publishes the authors' books of the above mentioned. Exceptions are, as always, found. Brabenec and Pecha think that children can read anything if they enjoy it. Baldur will bring one of Indians from last year, Ghost Dance is named. And this year's novel "See Wolves".

To be sure, both are really for children.
