Meet Martin and Xabier

Meet the Basque authors Xabier and Martin Etxeberria:

It all started in 1999 when brothers Xabi and Martin tried to write a children’s story together. Their story, “Airean ere negu usaina nabari da” (1999, Erein), ended up winning the Lizardi Prize.

Since then, as a creative tandem, they have written several works in children’s literature, in adult fiction, and most recently in the world of comics.

Both Martin and Xabier have each published their own works as well.
