The logo for Sarah Jessica Parker’s own publishing imprint has been revealed.
SJP for Hogarth is a partnership between Penguin Random House’s Crown Publishing Group in the US and Chatto & Windus in the UK.
The imprint will launch in the UK in 2018. The actress told the New York Times she would be looking for “great voices” and “global stories”.
Parker will be involved in every part of the publishing process, from acquisition to design and marketing. The move is an extension of her working relationship with Molly Stern, senior vice president, publisher for Crown, Hogarth, Broadway, Crown Archetype and Three Rivers Press. Parker and Stern decided to form a book club back in 2012, which has been meeting regularly for the past three years.
Parker said: “As a lifelong book lover, as someone who treasures and admires the skill and talent of original and powerful story tellers it is my great privilege to be invited into the world and business of books. Especially thrilling to join those who serve the rich history that is Hogarth. I so look forward to offering to readers the sort of books that have inspired my life long devotion to the written word.”
Stern said: “From the moment we met, I was drawn to Sarah Jessica’s extraordinary passion for books and her natural instinct for what makes for great writing. The Hogarth editorial team and I cannot wait to partner with her as she brings her excellent taste and infectious enthusiasm to bear in support of both writers and reading.”
