David Delano’s entire career has been about books. He has worked in book publishing since 1970, after attending Northwestern University and Loyola University, Chicago where he received a BA in English. His experience ranges from design to editorial management, from title acquisition to manufacturing, from production assistant to VP, and all the stops in-between. Professor Delano’s publishing background was polished at places like Random House and Harper & Row and printing experience was earned with industry leaders like R.R. Donnelley, G.W. Banta, and W. A. Krueger. Currently, he is the US representative for a global printing company, Toppan Printing, Hong Kong. Professor Delano has taught at Pace since the early 2000’s. He also lectures at the Columbia Publishing Seminar and the NYU Summer Publishing Program. Professor Delano has also judged the New York Book Show three times.
