Queen of the Seas

The Following extract is taken from an article published by ‘Queen of the Seas’ on cartonera publishers. It Gives a special mention to  Editorial Ultramarina C & D , while discussing an exhibition space dedicated to this unique publishing format (AECID Library at (Complutense University, Madrid):

«England is being initiated into the art of cartonera. The first book to cross the borders was Village of Stones / Pueblo die Piedras; a bilingual poetry collection from British writer Brian Lee. Each copy had a hand-painted cover, on recycled cardboard, by Spanish artist Rosa Beiroa. It was translated into Spanish by José Manuel Camacho cardboard and published (in Spain) by Editorial Ultramarina cartonera, who took it to the UK. In Spain there are several cartonera publishers: Casamanita Cartoneira; Cartonerita Ninabonita; Cartopies Cartonera; Ediciones Karakarton; Llibres de Cartó; Meninas Cartoneras; Aida cartonera… and Ultramarina Cartonera & Digital. Ultramarina Cartonera broke the boundaries of the usual concept. As previously mentioned, they published the first British cartonera publication, and did so with a bilingual edition – but, as the name suggests («Digital») this publishing house also publishes their books in a digital format, giving the option to purchase the book OR download it for free. They are book-binders and cardboard craftsman with digital broadcasting. The organization is very neat and allows you to be versatile in its shares, immersed in the broad field of cultural management. The publisher also set up PLACA (Platform Artists Chilango Andalusians).»
