Aurum Publishing Group created

The group title under which the combined lists of Frances Lincoln, Aurum Press, Jacqui Small, Union Books and Apple Press will now be known has been announced as The Aurum Publishing Group.

The combined lists have also been brought under one roof for the first time, moving to White Lion Street in London's Angel, N1.

Aurum Publishing Group m.d. David Graham (pictured) said: "Our new name and our new home announces a fresh chapter in these five imprints' history. Combined we have one of the most dynamic and exciting trade lists in the UK and I look forward to growing our business - in both print and digital markets - with all my colleagues at APG."

Marcus Leaver, newly appointed to the role of Quarto Group c.e.o., said the development was "only the first of a number of steps The Quarto Group will be taking to make sure the great creativity and ability of our businesses flourish and translate into the best possible results for investors, employees and other stakeholders alike."
