On June 30, 2006, Gyldendal (the biggest Danish publishing agency) released Martin Hall’s epic two-volume novel The Last Romantic in its first paperback edition. Originally People’s Press had released the hardback novel in August 2005.

Gyldendal’s paperback version of the book became The Danish Booksellers Association’s ”book of the month” throughout July and August 2006, thereby securing the title its status as a regular bestseller (as a hardback novel the book had already sold several editions). The paperback version furthermore presented the book with a new cover design, a photograph taken by Robin Skjoldborg.
