Banipal, a magazine of contemporary Arab literature in English translation, has partnered with Exact Editions to launch a digital edition of its Spanish-language counterpart, Revista Banipal de literatura árabe moderna.

Revista Banipal offers subscribers the opportunity to read and engage with a wealth of contemporary poetry and prose from the Arab world, all in Spanish translation, as well as interviews with established and emerging authors, publishers and translators, book reviews and photo-reports of literary events.

Individual readers and institutions such as universities, government departments, colleges and libraries can instantly access three archived issues, as well as newly released issues, across web, iOS and Android devices.

The Exact Editions platform’s search function allows users to get the most out of this unique resource, says the company; subscribers can search for a term, particular author or translator across a specific issue or the whole archive, as well as bookmark relevant pages.

Revista Banipal is available in the Exact Editions individual and institutional shops.

Publisher Margaret Obank commented: “Launching a digital edition of Revista Banipal is the best way, particularly in these continuing Covid-19 times, to reach the millions of Spanish speakers throughout the world. Though we only established the print edition in March last year, it has received exceptional acclaim and enthusiastic interest.”

Managing Director of Exact Editions, Daryl Rayner, remarked: “We are thrilled to work with Revista Banipal to make such a rich resource available to individuals and institutions worldwide. The magazine looks fantastic online as well as on the app, and will certainly be an invaluable resource to lovers of world literature.”
