Books That Made a Difference to Viggo Mortensen
Putting together books well can be a rewarding challenge. Everyone at Perceval—from our designer, Michele Perez, and Sandra Fu, who took over for Pilar, to my brother Walter Mortensen and myself— has found satisfaction in helping create publications tailored to individual authors and artists. We make sure they're happy with every aspect of the finished work: editing, font, layout, type of paper, images, etc. Writers are often pleasantly surprised that they have so much say. I tell them, "You're not likely to get rich— to be honest, your book may not make a profit for quite a while. But I can promise it'll be a book made as close to the way you have envisioned it as possible, well designed and produced." It's satisfying to be able to provide that service to artists whose efforts might not otherwise be presented in quite the manner they would like, if at all.
Viggo Mortensen's book I Forget You for Ever is available at PercevalPress.com.
