Liverpool University Press has acquired around 400 backlist and forthcoming titles from Casemate/Oxbow. The books, published under the Aris & Phillips imprint, are predominantly facing page translations of Classics and Hispanic texts with widespread course adoption.
Anthony Cond, Managing Director of LUP, said: “Complementing existing editorial strengths in Classics and the Modern Languages, the acquisition of the Aris and Phillips lists presents a high quality addition to our print and digital publishing.”
David Farnsworth, President of the Casemate Group said “We are delighted the Aris & Phillips list will continue to thrive in the more than capable hands of LUP – it is a great new home for it.”
Liverpool University Press assumes publishing responsibilities for the acquired titles with immediate effect. All stock will be available via its distribution channels – Turpin Distribution (UK, Europe and ROW) and Oxford University Press (North America).
Founded in 1899, Liverpool University Press is the UK’s third oldest university press and one of its fastest growing scholarly publishers in recent years.
