From the starting point to today

The French translation of Takaaki Yoshimoto's “The Communal illusion” is the starting point for all.

  1. In 1984 Director Hitoshi Nakata of Digitalestate Co., Ltd. begins the French translation of “Joint Fantasy”. The entire 3/11 translation was brought to a major French publisher, Editor Gallimard, but did not publish.
    1987-1992 All translations are completed in 1987, but as an alternative to publishing in France, complete translation is published in five volumes in Kinjo Gakuin University Journal from 1988 to 1992.
  2. In 1984 Hitoshi Nakata begga the French translation of “The Communal illusion”.  The translation of 3/11 of The entire book was brought to a major French publisher, Edition Gallimar, but it was not published.
  3. 1987-1992 All translations are completed in 1987, but as an alternative to publishing in France, complete translation is published in five volumes in Kinjo Gakuin University Journal from 1988 to 1992.
  4. In 1996, instead of publication in France I converted it into an e-book with Voyager’s Expand Book, which was sold as a CD-ROM entitled “Takaaki Yoshimoto’s The communal Illusion” with Takaaki Yoshimoto’s voice.
  5. In 1999, I published as a co-author of Takaaki Yoshimoto “Michel Foucault and The communal Illusion” from Kobosha.
  6. In 2010, Kobundo changed its name to Digitalestate Co., Ltd. to become a publishing company, and started publishing novels “Detective Travel of Izumi Kagami” and “Izumi Kagami’s Travel Casebook” written by his wife Tomoko Takahama (pen name) . This year, E-books starts by fully launched EPUB3. E-books were available on Amazon, Apple’s iBooks, Kobo and Google Play Books. I also published an e-book version of  “L’Illusion commune", the French version of “The communal Illusion“.
  7. In 2012, after the closure of Kobosha, “Takaaki Yoshimoto Speaking of his The communal Illusion ” was revised and published as “Tomaki Yoshimoto and The communal Illusiony”.
  8. In 2015, I signed the contract with the Digital Publishing Organization (currently Media Do), and distributes the French version of «L’Illusion commune» to all electronic bookstores in Japan.
  9. In 2016, under the contract with Media Do, we started publishing print books on Print On Demand (POD) from First, publish a POD of the French version of the electronic book version «L’Illusion commune» of “Cooperative Fantasy" However, it is not possible to sell POD books outside of Japan by, so through the subsidiary CreateSpace (currently out of business), the international version of POD «L’Illusion commune».
  10. In March 2017, the French version «Commentary sur L’ Illusion commune souhaitée par Michel Foucault» was published as a POD and an e-book on the occasion of exhibiting at LivreParis 2017.

Alexandre Dumas Drama Collection

Many people has heard “Three Musketeers” and “The Count of Monte Cristo”,etc. but very few people are really studying Alexandre Dumas.  It’s because his works are too amusing to study seriously. But first of all, Dumas, who was a theatrical author, performed 117 plays, but unfortunately, none of them had no Japanese translation. So I am very happy to publish translations for the first time.
