Limehouse sets up poker imprint
17.11.11 | Charlotte Williams
Independent publisher Limehouse Books and the International Federation of Poker have created IFP Books, the UK's only imprint dedicated to poker.
Limehouse c.e.o. and m.d. Bobby Nayyar said: "Our remit is to maintain the high production and design standards of Limehouse Books, and focus on commissioning new titles, whilst republishing classic poker texts that are no longer in print. This is an exciting proposition, as poker is a game that goes from strength to strength."
The imprint will initially publish a volume a year. Its first title, The Rules of Poker, edited by poker-playing novelist David Flusfeder, has an introduction by the IFP's president, and author of poker memoir Big Deal, Anthony Holden. It will be released in August 2012 as a b-format hardback priced £12.99.
