After announcing last October that it had formed a new text-driven imprint called Abrams Press, illustrated book publisher Abrams said that the first book under the new line will be released in May.

Grocery: The Buying and Selling of Food in America by bestselling food writer Michael Ruhlman will be published May 16. The book, which Abrams said will "explore that ways in which we produce, market, and consumer our food," was acquired by Abrams publisher Michael Sand.

Additional books from Abrams Press, which is being overseen by by executive editor Jamison Stoltz, will be released in the fall and include Two-Dimensional Man by graphic designer Paul Sahre; Breaking Bad 101, a companion to the AMC show, by television critic Alan Sepinwall; and A Stash of One’s Own edited by Clara Parkes, a collection of literary essays from some of the biggest names in the knitting world.

Commenting on the official launch of the new imprint, Abrams CEO Michael Jacobs said: “With Abrams Press, we are realizing a longstanding desire to add timely, thought-provoking narrative books to our already successful adult publishing portfolio.”
