Another Milestone

Serving the book publishing industry since 1989

In 1989, the Berlin Wall came down. Today, the U.S. government is partially shut down over a different wall.

We’ve seen the rise of Amazon, ebooks, digital advertising and social media among other game changers.

But the passion that brings people into this business remains the same as it was when some of us were singing “Love Shack” along with The B-52’s. That is: to connect readers with books that will inform, move, improve, comfort, distract, engage, transform . . .

That’s where Verso comes in. 

You’ve tapped us for inspiration. You’ve turned to us for reliability and honesty. You’ve trusted us to enhance your voice and your reach.

You know we’re there when you want the best, fast, at the best rate going.

For 30 years our partnership has been a pleasure and a privilege.

Thank you.
