Former Carlton boss Greenhough to launch music list

Former Carlton Books m.d. Jim Greenhough has been retained by Danish publisher Flying V Books to launch a programme of music titles in 2019.

Copenhagen-based publisher Flying V has secured world rights to a "massive" archive of predominantly unseen photographs of a number of the major artists that have toured Scandinavia since 1965, including Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd and Deep Purple. The "rare" images coupled with newly researched interviews and archive material give the series a "unique position" in music publishing, Flying V said.

Greenhough, whose early career was working in the music industry with EMI, said: "This is an extraordinary archive of images, giving a unique insight into key moments in music history such as the first time Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham played together publicly. I am very excited to be working with the team at Flying V on this fascinating project."

Flying V is in the process of putting together an extensive international publishing programme.

Søren Vangsgaard, publisher of Flying V, said: "Our programme has the potential to bring to life incredible insights to fans across the world for years to come.  We are already working with Jim on our plans and look forward to sharing our vision with interested parties at the forthcoming London Book Fair."

Flying V is partnering with international sales and marketing agency Saltway and will be based on the Saltway stand at the London Book Fair. Greenhough can be contacted at: jim.greenhough@flyingvbooks.com or on stand number 6F81 at the London Book Fair.
