Press Release: Miscellaneous Announcements
Creation Of The Aurum Publishing Group

Posted at 10:11PM Thursday 24 Jan 2013

We are delighted to announce the creation of The Aurum Publishing Group – the group title under which the combined lists of Frances Lincoln, Aurum Press, Jacqui Small, Union Books and Apple Press will now be known and which completes the transition of Frances Lincoln Publishers and Frances Lincoln Children's Books into The Quarto Group's core UK trade publishing business.

The Aurum Publishing Group also moved to new premises at the end of 2012 and is now based in Angel, London. This move physically brings the combined lists under one roof for the first time in an exciting and new creative space.

David Graham, Managing Director of The Aurum Publishing Group says: "Our new name and new home announces a fresh chapter in these five imprints' history. Combined we have one of the most dynamic and exciting general trade lists in the UK and I look forward to growing our business - in both print and digital markets - with all my colleagues at APG."

Marcus Leaver, The Quarto Group's newly appointed Chief Executive Officer says: "This is an exciting day for The Aurum Publishing Group as they set out with a new name from new premises. It is only the first of a number of steps The Quarto Group will be taking to make sure the great creativity and ability of our businesses flourish and translate into the best possible results for investors, employees and other stakeholders alike."
