In 2006 the company was named Publisher of the Year.

Faber and Faber Inc., formerly the American branch of the London company, was sold in 1998 to the Holtzbrinck company Farrar, Straus and Giroux, now operated as part of the Macmillan group.

Famous quotes containing the word faber:

    If anybody comes to I,
    I physics, bleeds, and sweats’em;
    If, after that, they like to die,
    Why, what care I, I lets ‘em.
    —Anonymous. “On Dr. Lettsom,” from Geoffrey Grigson’s Faber Book of Epigrams and Epitaphs (1977)
