Playing with My Books – A Publisher’s A-Z
Rather than write reviews, I’ve been ‘playing with my books’. Not bookspine poetry this time, but I thought I’d see how much of an A-Z I could make with publishers logos which are initials.
I set some strict criteria, single letters only unless they were doubled, or consecutive, so no W&N, JM, E&T etc. Here’s how I did…
Top Row: Arrow, Alma, Atlantic, Arcadia, Alison & Busby, Borough Press, Corvus, Canongate (old logo) Century, Dome, Dent, Faber & Faber, Gollancz, Galileo, Hesperus (whatever happened to them?), Hodder, Hamish Hamilton, Mantle.
Bottom Row: Orbit, Profile, Phoenix, Pushkin Press, Quartet, Riverrun, Raven, Salt, Sceptre, Serpent’s Tail, Telegram, Text, Unbound, Vintage, Wildfire and Zephyr.
Missing letters: E, I, J, K, L, N, X and Y – so I didn’t do too badly. Are there publishers I could have filled in the gaps with.
