Excelsior Editions

In 2008 the Press started a trade imprint called Excelsior Editions. This imprint publishes popular works for all readers and also showcases the diversity of the peoples, histories, and natural beauty of New York and the surrounding regions. Black Elk Speaks, as told to John Neihardt, and Hudson Valley Voyage were two of the first books to be published under the imprint. Go, Tell Michelle was edited, designed, and printed on an accelerated schedule in early January, 2009 in order to be available in time for the Presidential Inauguration. 2009 saw the publication of a number of new Excelsior titles, including Woodstock: The Oral History, 40th Anniversary Edition.
