About Independent Publishers Group (IPG)
Established in 1971, IPG was the first organization specifically created for the purpose of marketing titles from independent presses to the book trade. With consistent growth year over year, IPG’s success has come from supporting and encouraging the growth of its client publishers in the United States and worldwide. IPG’s wide reach into the book market includes distribution of publishers with academic and professional, Spanishlanguage, and general trade nonfiction and fiction titles. IPG was acquired by Chicago Review Press in 1987, and Chicago Review Press, Inc., the parent company of both IPG and Chicago Review Press, was born.
