One of the strongest features of Safari is the array and range of publishing partners who provide valuable content to our library. A partner that strongly exemplifies this breadth and depth is The Perseus Books Group which is composed of a series of imprints including Basic Books, Da Capo Press, Weinstein Books, Running Press, Seal Press,and Nation Books.
As the first installment of a new regular feature here at the Safari blog, we’d like to shine a spotlight on Perseus and their spectrum of content.
