Faber ends affiliation with Farrar, Straus and Giroux

US-based Farrar, Straus and Giroux (FSG) and UK’s Faber and Faber have ended their 17-year affiliation, reports Publishers Weekly. FSG will no longer publish titles under the US-based Faber and Faber Inc. imprint, which FSG purchased from Faber in 1998. The imprint primarily published performing arts titles, but also included literary fiction and nonfiction books. Faber and Faber Inc. publisher Mitzi Angel will continue to commission books, but will do so under the FSG banner. Faber and Faber CEO Stephen Page said the changing publishing market made it necessary for the company to look for a different approach to the US. ‘The market for English-language publishing has become increasingly global and digital, and it has become important for us, as a UK-based publisher, to be able to operate under our strong brand in all English language markets,’ said Page. Faber is expected to announce its new plans in the US shortly. All new titles currently under contract to Faber and Faber Inc. will become FSG titles, and FSG will retain the rights to all previously published Faber titles.
