Edgewise Press, founded in 1995 by Richard Milazzo, Howard B. Johnson, and Joy L. Glass, is dedicated to publishing quality books with an emphasis on art, art criticism, aesthetics, philosophy, fiction and verse. It maintains editorial seats in New York and Paris. All of its books are first edition paperbacks, sewn, bound and printed in Turin, Italy, with a two-color front and back cover and a black and white photograph of the author on the frontispiece.

Barney Rosset, publisher of Grove Press, Evergreen Review, Blue Moon Books, and Foxrock, wrote the following about Edgewise when the Press was only three years old, in 1998, in a letter to Francis Ford Coppola: “I thought this might be an interesting and even personal venue for you to publish something that has possibly been somewhere in the back of your mind, such as some of your concepts about filmmaking or anything that comes to mind that you might find rewarding to do.

“Edgewise is a very modest enterprise thus far as size is concerned but its books are getting to the right places and their very demeanor, simple, yet interesting, gives them a special cachet. And, as you can see by the enclosed list of upcoming titles, and from the diversity of areas and prestigious authors within their own fields, this Press is making an important contribution to our intellectual and literary well being. So, do think about this, and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.”
