Random House imprints Crown Publishing Group (U.S.) and Chatto & Windus (U.K.) will join forces in a new fiction imprint named Hogarth. U.S. publisher Molly Stern and U.K. publishing director Clara Farmer will helm the imprint.
Some of the titles on Hogarth’s inaugural list in 2012 include: I Am Forbidden by Anouk Markovits, The Watch by Joydeep Roy-Bhattacharya, The Dead Do Not Improve by Jay Caspian Kang, and The Kissing List by Stephanie Reents. All Hogarth books will be available in both print and digital formats.
Here’s more from the press release: “The new imprint is named in honour of The Hogarth Press, founded by Virginia and Leonard Woolf in 1917 from their home … In the U.S., Hogarth will publish between eight and ten fiction titles each year. In the U.K., Hogarth will publish a smaller list of titles annually, comprising books that are also published by Hogarth in the U.S..”
