alazzo has unveiled a major study of Steven Spielberg, to which the acclaimed director will write a foreword.
Steven Spielberg: Te Man and His Movies 
 by Richard Schickel, film critic and documentary-maker and the author of 30+ books, is “a definitive retrospective” and  will include images from the DreamWorks archive. Publication in autumn 2012 will coincide with the release of Spielberg’s
Lincoln
.Palazzo founder and MD Colin  Webb has already closed deals in France, Germany, Sweden and the US, where Sterling President Marcus Leaver said: “I’m thrilled that Sterling and Palazzo are collaborating on yet another sure-fire hit, the latest in a long line of winners we have published together. It’s a personal pleasure to work with such good friends as Colin and Pam as they celebrate the tenth anniversary of Palazzo!”Palazzo’s latest project,
No Direction Home 
, a director’s cut of Robert Shelton’s classic Bob Dylan biography – just out in Australia to widespread praise – will be celebrated at LBF tomorrow by Omnibus Press.

peaking from three diverse perspectives – film and V, the music business, and publishing – the morning speakers kicked off this year’s London Book Fair Digital Conference with some common observations: platform is key, distribution will be a challenge, but the digital numbers are finally beginning to live up to the hype.“2011 will be a tipping point,said the morning’s first speaker, Michael Comish, from UK video provider, Blinkbox. Citing smartphones and tablets, Comish said consumers were shifting from a culture of “ownership” to one of “access”, and they are now likely to pay for content on their devices. He stressed the benefits of offering a mix of free and paid content. Most digital businesses cannot survive on ads alone, he noted. But ad-supported free content is a great way to underwrite “customer acquisition”, and is also how consumers come to know, like and trust new products.Paul Brindley, CEO of digital music provider MusicAlly.com, characterized the history of the music business in one word: resistance. But Brindley cited a  wave of innovative new digital businesses and deals refocused on providing music as a service. Unlike the music business, which  was at the tip of the digital spear, he suggested book publishers were in an excellent position. Te timing is great, he noted: the devices are here, books are not easily “ripped,” and the “unbundling” of books is an opportunity for publishers. In addition, digital adds new value, such as the ability to take a library on vacation, search, and networking capabilities.Bloomsbury’s Evan Schnittman closed the morning keynotes  with a look at the surging US ebook market, echoing some of the opportunities and challenges raised by Comish and Brindley.  A device may have jump-started the market – the Kindle – but the market is not device driven, he stressed. Rather, platform is the key. On that front, each speaker alluded to the challenges
LBF Digital – the future is now 
of distribution. Schnittman suggested there loomed “a tremendous channel problem,” for publishers as the dominance of the closed platforms from  Apple, and Amazon, is essentially a tax on reaching your customers. Apple is not your friend,” Comish earlier warned. “Content is king, but not forever, as distribution power concentrates.”

kind of fiction that Crown has traditionally published”.In the US, Hogarth will publish between eight and 10 fiction titles each year. In the UK, it will publish a smaller list, made up entirely of books that are also published by Hogarth in the US. Te “sister imprints”, as Random House is calling them, will also collaborate in developing promotional plans for shared publications. Among the lead titles on Hogarth’s inaugural list in both territories will be
I Am Forbidden
 by  Anouk Markovits, originally acquired by Crown’s Lindsay Sagnette from Scott Moyers of the Wylie Agency. It looks inside the world of the Satmar, the most insular and fundamentalist of Hasidic sects. Another is
Te Watch
 by Joydeep Roy-Bhattacharya, acquired by Becky Hardie at Chatto from Arabella Stein on behalf of Nicole Aragi, in which an Afghan  woman demands the US military returns her brother’s body.

 wo divisions of Random House that exist across the pond from each other are launching a fiction imprint that  will share a close but non-exclusive editorial relationship. Te Crown Publishing Group in the US and Chatto & Windus, an imprint of Vintage Publishing (Random House UK), announced today (11 April) the creation of Hogarth, which will focus on “contemporary, voice-driven, character-rich stories that entertain, inform, and move readers”.Molly Stern, Senior VP, Publisher of Crown, will lead the imprint in the US (Stern left Penguin for Crown with a bit of drama last summer). Clara Farmer, Publishing Director, Chatto & Windus, will lead the UK imprint. Hogarth, named after Virginia and Leonard  Woolf’s Hogarth Press (founded in 1917), will release its first titles in summer 2012.

BookBrunch has entered into a partnership with BDS, which has taken a stake in the news service. BDS will provide IT expertise, support and development through its Ehaus web development subsidiary, and BookBrunch will complement BDS’s information services, including its Books & Media reviews website and newsletter.BookBrunch, run by former
Publishing News
 Editor Liz Thomson and ex-
Bookseller 
 Editor Nicholas Clee, began publishing before the 2008 Frankfurt Book Fair. Since then, it has built an archive of nearly 9,000 items of book industry news. It has also partnered with
Publishers Weekly 
 to publish the
London Fair Dealer 
 and
Frankfurt Fair Dealer 
. It offers a premium subscription service and a free newsletter, which goes to more than 5,000 industry professionals each day.BDS provides book and home entertainment data to libraries and retailers. Director Eric Green said: “The book industry knowledge that Liz and Nick have really informs the quality that BookBrunch delivers – it’s newsy, timely and value-adding and many of us at BDS have always loved reading the daily newsletter. With our expanding portfolio of businesses and customers, we really understand and appreciate how vital it is to keep up-to-date with industry developments and news – from bibliographic data to the latest reviews that you can access through our fledgling service Books & Media.“Making an investment in BookBrunch is a natural fit for us not only because we’re in the information business but also because we can offer the technical expertise through one of our subsidiaries, Ehaus, that will allow for all the exciting technical developments that BookBrunch is ready to make. We’re really excited about this addition to the BDS suite of services and can’t wait to start working with the BookBrunch duo.”For BookBrunch, the partnership marks the next stage in its development, enabling it to deliver its news more quickly and efficiently, and promising to enhance its offering in partnership with BDS’s entertainment, film and reviews services. In a joint statement, Thomson and Clee said: “We are delighted that BDS has chosen to put its faith in us – their expertise will allow us to develop BookBrunch at a much faster pace than was possible on our own and their investment gives us solidity and security.”
