Now, 25 years is a long time. These snaps from past reports show this to be beautifully true:
‘Central to Headline’s publishing philosophy will be producing books that people actually want to buy’ and Headline would be ‘entering the market with a dynamic modern approach that puts authors first’, and provide authors, agents, suppliers and customers a unique level of friendly, professional service and involvement.' (7th July 1986)
Never a truer word t'was said! Anyway, enough babbling from me, here is a selection of snaps from the party of the year, nay the century:
|Headline turns 25 in a church. Doesn't it look gorge?|
|A trio of founding Headliners, Tim Hely-Hutchinson (left) and |
Sue Fletcher (right) and current Headline MD Jane Morpeth in the middle.
|Headline authors who have been published for 20 years plus were awarded a long service medal. |
Here is Dee Williams (left) with hers and her lovely editor, Leah Woodburn (right).
|The eternally glamourous novelist Jill Mansell.|
|Some more glamourous ladies. Left to right: Frances Doyle (Headline), Tasmina Perry (author) |
and Tasmina's sister and journalist Farah Butt.
|The Waterstone's crew with Headline's Kim Hardie on the left.|
|If there was a category for 'the loveliest photo of publishing types' this would win gold.|
Jane Morpeth on the left and Darley Anderson on the right.
|Behold two more gorgeous ladies! Adele Parks, Headline author (left) and Amanda Ross, Cactus TV (right)|
Well, there you have it, exclusive images from the hottest (quite literally at some points) publishing party of the year.
