The Calder Collection

The Calder Collection

Oneworld Classics are delighted to announce the launch of this new series, the Calder Collection, which aims to bring back into print some of the best classics titles published by John Calder over the past sixty years and add newly commissioned works from world literature.

Just like the Oneworld Classics series, its mainstream counterpart launched three years ago, the Calder Collection's focus will be works in translation which are not currently available in the English market, but it will also actively commission or reprint works of Scottish interest, in a bid to reconnect the Calder name with its Scottish roots. The series will be developed using the new short-print-run and print-on-demand technologies.
