Amagi Imprint

A new Liberty Fund imprint that brings the best of classical liberal economic and political theory of the past 100 years to life for todays college students. The cuneiform inscription for which this new imprint is named also serves as a design element in all Liberty Fund books. It is the earliest-known written appearance of the word “freedom” (amagi), or “liberty.” It is taken from a clay document written about 2300 B.C. in the Sumerian city-state of Lagash. Drawing from the Liberty Fund tradition of republishing classical liberal texts, the Amagi imprint includes works that are not considered classics, yet are important to the understanding of a society of free and responsible individuals. Amagi books will appear in affordable flexcase paperbacks with reader-friendly typefaces, handsome page layouts, and modern yet classic cover designs.
