Verso Books (formerly New Left Books) is a publishing house based in London and New York City, founded in 1970 by the staff of New Left Review.
Renaming, new brand and logo
Verso Books was originally known as New Left Books. The name was changed in 2008. The name "Verso" refers to the technical term for the left-hand page in a book (see Recto and verso), and is a play on words regarding its political outlook and also reminds of the vice versa - "the other way around".
The new logo of the company shows a big red "V" with bolded left arm that also could be readed like a double V (one big and one smaller), and on the twitter of the Publisher the huge V-logo is even tripled in the background.
History and details
The publisher gained early recognition for translations of books by European thinkers, especially those from the Frankfurt School.
Verso Books titles are distributed in the United States by Random House.
