AP publishes a new spiral-bound Stylebook each spring. We sell our book directly on apstylebook.com and to college bookstores.
Basic Books publishes a perfect-bound paperback AP Stylebook every other year. On years when Basic Books publishes a Stylebook, it is nearly identical to the AP version, without some information about AP filing practices. The 2015 AP Stylebook published by Basic Books does not include the back-of-book index or chapters about how to file AP stories. This version is sold via retail bookstores, both online and bricks and mortar.
