Dolby’s Imprint at Random House UK is Named

The Bookseller reports that Trevor Dolby and Rosie de Courcy‘s new imprint at Random House UK has been named Preface Publishing. The announcement comes simultaneously with the launch of the imprint’s Spring 2008 list, comprising A POINT OF VIEW by Lisa Jardine and THE CLEANER by Brett Battles (a debut spy thriller published this month by Bantam Dell.) Dolby, formerly publisher at HarperCollins, joined Random House in April to set up Preface as a new list straddling non-fiction and fiction. “I am delighted that Preface has developed at such a fast pace since its inception in April,” he said. “It is very exciting to be able to formally name the imprint and give it a strong identity.” De Courcy joined the company as publishing director in March.
