Ich habe an über 650 Buchprojekten als Übersetzter, Lektor oder Projektmanager mitgearbeitet. Viele dieser Bücher bleiben in meiner Erinnerung. Manche haben ein perfektes Format, das sehr gut in der Hand liegt. Andere haben wunderschöne Bilder oder spannende Texte, die mich nicht loslassen. Oft liebe ich ein Buch wegen des fantastischen Teams, mit dem ich bei der Produktion zusammenarbeiten durfte. Hier sind dreißig meiner Lieblinge:


Over 650 book projects bear my mark as a translator, editor, or project manager. Many of these books remain engraved in my mind. Some books have a perfect format that feels just right in my hands. Others have beautiful images or intriguing texts that continue to fascinate me. Often I love a book because it reminds me of the fantastic team with whom I worked to produce it. These are thirty of my favorites:
