About DVP

Deux Voiliers Publishing is an initiative of Ian Thomas Shaw, who writes under the nom de plume Con Cú (owl in Vietnamese). DVP was founded to promote novelists who wish to combine beauty with an examination of human nature. It also supports the work of translators, who seek to bring new voices to Canadian readers.

 

Organized as an informal writers-plus collective, DVP is a new generation publisher. We seek to match and surpass traditional publishers in producing high quality works of fiction accessible to readers everywhere. The art of creating new works of fiction is our driving force. 

 

DVP loves public libraries. They are fabulous institutions for nurturing the imagination and creativity of future generations. So if you see a great book in our collection, don't just buy it for yourself but recommend it to your local public library for the benefit of other readers.

 

Deux Voiliers Publishing is named after a painting by Quebec artist Sacha Barrette. The painting depicts two sailboats (deux voiliers in French) crossing turbulent water. The first sailboat cuts through the rough waters to ease the path of the second. The painting reflects how in life, one person often clears the obstacles for another and underscores the collective spirit of our micropress.

 

The logo for Deux Voiliers is however based on an acrylic painting of Egyptian fellucas by Ian Thomas Shaw, and not on the original painting by Sacha Barrette.
