Editor's Note: Innovation And Cross-Pollination
It's far from a scientific study, but the sampling of industry players profiled in "The Innovators" special feature package this issue have something in common: the ability to cross disciplines. It's something you're seeing more and more of in the book industry—and the publishing sector at large. The lines that define the work a book publisher does are blurring, so the industry needs people that operate across them. Particularly, we've noticed innovation goes hand-in-hand with the ability to take experiences and wisdom gathered in one discipline and apply it to another.
