Vermilion is launching a its own Life Essentials series in August starting with revamps of five bestsellers featuring "original thinking and life-changing ideas" including How to Win Friends and Influence People and Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway.
On 8th August, the Ebury imprint is “celebrating its talented authors and the richness of its catalogue” with “fresh-look editions” boasting new covers designed by David Eldridge at Two Associates, the publisher said.
The first wave of titles in the Vermilion Life Essentials series will be How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie which was first published in 1936, Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway by Susan Jeffers, Grit by Angela Duckworth, The Magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz and Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.
Vermilion will publish a further five titles in 2020 which will include The Chimp Paradox by Prof Steve Peters, The 4-Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss and Rework by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson.
Susanna Abbott, publishing director, said: “Vermilion has an impressive track record of publishing bestsellers that go on to become must-read classics. This new series is a celebration of our fantastic catalogue, past and present, and will help us engage an even wider readership. Each title has been selected for its original thinking and life-changing ideas – ideas which are as important and relevant today as when they were first published. Vermilion’s ethos is publishing experts readers can trust and this new series showcases just some of the amazing talent we work with.”
Collectively the titles have sold more than 40 million copies worldwide across all formats and editions, Vermillion said.
