The sisu book, Nordic Kiss, continues to blaze a trail! Just before the Easter break, we closed auctions in France and The Netherlands for Katja Pantzar’s forthcoming book. Belfond and Kosmos were the winning publishers in the respective territories for this exciting non-fiction project that introduces the Nordic lifestyle and the uniquely Finnish concept of sisu.
Both publishers expressed delight with their acquisitions:
“We at Belfond are so happy to be the French publisher of Nordic Kiss, a perfect acquisition for our l’Esprit d’ouverture imprint. Katja Pantzar tells us everything about the Finnish concept of sisu, the new Scandi trends and we can’t wait to spread the word in France. Are you ready to try?” – Caroline Ast, Éditions Belfond, France
“We are very happy and proud that we have the honor of bringing Nordic Kiss to The Netherlands and Belgium. We can use some ‘sisu’ over here.” – Hans Koenen, Kosmos Uitgevers, The Netherlands
