About us

 

a little bit of our history

As one of the oldest literary Agencies in Europe we combine historical know-how to modern nimbleness and execution necessary to break through in the unforgiving publishing world. 

The agency was founded in 1962 by Harald Kahnemann and Karin von Prellwitz - who had   emigrated to Argentina from their homes in Germany two decades earlier. Harald, a famed philosophy and theology scholar and recipient of the German Honorary Cross for cultural achievements set out with the purpose of promoting quality fiction and non-fiction worldwide and quickly established Eulama as one of the leading international rights mediators.

 

 Since 1964 the head office of the Agency has moved from Montevideo, Uruguay, to Rome, Italy, but it still keeps a close working relationship with the most authoritative Latin American publishers.
