Canongate and Walker Books create new imprint

13th July 2010

Independent publisher Canongate has created a new young adult imprint by collaborating with Walker Books.

The firms have joined forces to launch Walker Canongate, which will repackage Canongate's titles to market them at a new, younger audience.

Four books have been put out through the imprint this month - Yann Martel's Life of Pi, I'm Not Scared by Niccolo Ammaniti, Kelly Link's Pretty Monsters and The Radleys by Matt Haig.

Jamie Byng, managing director of Canongate, said: 'I've long admired the Walker list, both in terms of its range and quality, and so the prospect of launching a list with them is a thrilling one.'

Walker Books managing director Helen McAleer added that the two publishers share a reputation for bringing 'innovative and creative' works to their respective audiences and claimed their collaboration will benefit young adult readers.

The Canongate list includes a number of bestselling adult titles, including The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ by Philip Pullman, Kate Grenville's The Lieutenant and The Death of Bunny Munro by Nick Cave.
