The Morning in Publishing: Monday, February 6, 2017

Want to start your week with a feel-good story with a book at its center? The lovely edition pictured above is a “subjective encyclopedia” known as The Conversational Lexicon. It was written in Norwegian, Swedish, Danish and English, with entries from George Saunders, Jonathan Lethem, and Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker among others, and it has sold well enough to save an Oslo bookshop. You can read more about it over at The Guardian! But before you click away, we have a roundup of publishing news highlights awaiting your attention.
