"I feel the archival nature of the hardcover book solidly argues against it going away — it's permanent, it will be kept and shelved and referred to, it will outlast us all. And when the lights go out, you can fire up a candle and open the book to read and it will work just fine."
 — Chip Kidd, cover designer extraordinaire, Knopf, Random House

"I feel the archival nature of the hardcover book solidly argues against it going away — it's permanent, it will be kept and shelved and referred to, it will outlast us all. And when the lights go out, you can fire up a candle and open the book to read and it will work just fine."
 — Chip Kidd, cover designer extraordinaire, Knopf, Random House





"According to a recent Pew Research study, nearly 90% of e-book readers continue to read physical volumes. The two forms seem to serve different purposes. Having survived 500 years of technological upheaval, Gutenberg's invention may withstand the digital onslaught as well. There's something about a crisply printed, tightly bound book that we don't seem eager to let go."
 — Nicholas Carr, "Don't Burn Your Books—Print Is Here to Stay," Wall St. Journal, Jan. 2013





"Good books are friends who are always ready to talk to us."
 — Fortune Cookie Wisdom





"I think in any environment, but perhaps especially places at war, book reading creates a pause from day-to-day life and isolates a reader from their surroundings while they're buried in a book."
 — Janishid Hashimi,
co-founder of the Book Club of Afghanistan





 



 



"I looked everywhere for peace, but the only place I could find it was in a corner with a book."
 — Thomas Kempis, (1380-1471) ...with special thanks to the editors at DeCapo, Perseus for their calendar celebrating the 50th anniversary of DeCapo Press





 



 



"Writers believe in the patterns their words make which they hope and trust add up to ideas, to stories, to truth."
 — Julian Barnes, author of Levels of Life and other precious gifts





 



 



"The most valuable of all talents is that of never using two words when one will do."
 — Thomas Jefferson





 



 



"The best book, like the best speech, will do it all — make you laugh, think, cry and cheer — preferably in that order."
 — Madeleine Albright, Author and former Secretary of State





 



 



"Publishers don't just print books, they develop them. Without the invaluable dialogue between author and editor, many books would never be worth reading. Discussions of e-book economics often neglect the cost of this development."
 — Michael Fine, New York Times





 



 



"Writing is something of a paradox; it is a solitary passion, yet its success invariably depends on the insights, support, hard work, and enthusiasm of other people."
 — Michael Panzner, Financial Armageddon, 2007, one of the first authors and books to correctly predict 'The Great Recession'





 



 



You founded a publishing house for artists...why?

"It's a way of exploring. Editing is not unlike the movies. The best books, just like the best movies, are a collaboration. They're only as good as the compromises made between the artists involved."
 — Viggo Mortensen, Time Magazine, Dec. 29th 2008





 



 



"Sixty years ago I knew everything; now I know nothing — education is the progressive discovery of our ignorance."
 — Will Durant





 



 



"The industry does follow trends to pursue growth, but when it comes to acquisitions, methods have not changed much in hundreds of years, says Al Greco, a professor of marketing at Fordham University. It's the way this business has run since 1640 that is when 1,700 copies of the 'Bay Psalm Book' were published in the colonies. It was a gamble and they guessed right because it sold out of the print run. And ever since then, it has been a crap shoot."
 — NY Times, May 13, 2007, The Great Mystery: Making a Best Seller





 



 



"When you sell someone a book, you don't sell him twelve ounces of paper, and ink and glue — you sell him a whole new life."
Christopher Morley with thanks to SquareOne Publishers for their bookmark





 



 



"Writing is magic, as much the water of life as any other creative art. The water is free. So drink. Drink and be filled up."
Stephen King





 



 



"The love of learning, the sequestered nooks, and all the sweet serenity of books."
 — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow





 



 



"Two things have always been true about the book publishing world: everyone who is in it loves to complain about it, and there is always someone, somewhere, who wants to get into it."
(from The Impossible Business, Ken Auletta, New Yorker Magazine)





 



 



"The right information at the right time is nine-tenths of any battle."
 — Abraham Lincoln





 



 



"It really is a complete gamble. All you have to go on is your instinct and my feeling is if you are going to gamble, you might as well gamble big."
Jonathan Karp, Twelve Publishers, Publishers Weekly





 



 



Mr.Sterling (publisher for Holt & Co.) says he agrees that book publishing, for all its planning, remains a roll of the dice. "I still marvel that despite everything we do, we just don't know. It's the wonderful thing and the agonizing thing about the business."
Wall Street Journal, Oct. 16, 2006





 



 



"I know nothing in the world that has as much power as a word. Sometimes I write one, and look at it, until it begins to shine."
Emily Dickinson





 



 



"Words dazzle and deceive because they are mimed by the face. But black words on a white paper are the soul laid bare."
Guy de Maupassant





 



 



"You can't give a Website as a gift."
Susan Bolotin, Workman Publishers editor in chief in The Lonely Stand of Print Reference in Publishers Weekly
