Opening the book on a new direction.

LogoUPNE launched the ForeEdge trade imprint in Spring 2014. All of our books for a national, general interest audience on the subjects of history, politics, true crime, music, and other popular topics now carry this imprint. In book production, “fore-edge” refers to the front edge of the book, opposite the spine. While the spine of a book keeps it all together, it is the fore-edge that transforms the artifact of the book into a form of mental and emotional transport. Enjoy. Click here for the complete list.
