Pantheon—an imprint of the design-conscious publisher Alfred A. Knopf—demonstrated a similar commitment to craftsmanship with the enhanced e-book edition of The Fifty Year Sword, a key project in the division’s strategic development plan and a category changer in the realm of digitized adult fiction.
