File Under PR Formality: D+Q Announces Second Shortcomings Printing; New Foreign Rights Deals

D+Q has scheduled a second printing of Adrian Tomine's Shortcomings with additional foreign rights sold to Rizzoli (Italy), Random House Mondadori (Spain) and Reprodukt (Germany), it was announced today by Chris Oliveros, Drawn & Quarterly, EIC and Publisher. After multiple offers and auctions at the Frankfurt Book Festival, the three deals, brokered by Samantha Haywood of the Transatlantic Literary Agency, join existing contracts with Faber & Faber (UK), Editions du Seuil (France) and Oog en Blik (Netherlands). Shortcomings arrived in stores the first week of October, and a second printing has just been sent to the printer.

"It speaks to the quality of Adrian's work that prestigious foreign publishers such as Rizzoli, Random House Mondadori, and Reprodukt are joining the already impressive line-up of Faber & Faber, Seuil, and Oog en Blik," said Oliveros. "Adrian and Shortcomings will now receive a much deserved red carpet treatment in each territory, joining the buzz and excitement the book has already generated, which has led to a quick reprinting."

In Italy, the acquiring editor is Ottavio di Brizzi of Rizzoli, RCS Libri; Shortcomings will be in their 24/7 series. In Spain, the acquiring editor is Monica Carmona of Random House Mondadori; Shortcomings will be in their Reservoir Books series. In Germany, the acquiring editor is Dirk Rehm of Reprodukt.
