“Europa Editions has launched a non-fiction imprint, Europa Compass, with the first book coming from French author Antoine Compagnon in May.
Europa Editions described the new imprint as featuring “sophisticated yet accessible” titles on travel and contemporary culture, on popular science, history, philosophy, and politics. “Europa Compass will publish books that are informative, entertaining and diverse, and which will introduce Anglophone readers to new voices and points of view from all four corners of the map,” a spokesperson for the independent publisher said.”
