About Independent Publishers Group:
Founded in 1971, IPG was the first organization specifically created for the purpose of marketing titles from independent presses to the book trade. Today, IPG’s wide reach into the book market includes distribution of both print and e-books from a wide array of publishers, digital printing and traditional publishing. With consistent growth year over year, IPG’s success has come from supporting and encouraging the growth of its publishing partners in the United States and worldwide. IPG was acquired by Chicago Review Press in 1987, and this acquisition formed the parent company Chicago Review Press, Inc., which now owns Chicago-based indie publishers Chicago Review Press and Triumph Books. In October 2021, IPG acquired UK-based United Independent Distributors (UID) and its subsidiary companies Eurospan, Marston Book Services and Orca Book Services, extending IPG’s menu of services and global reach.

Cardinal Rule’s newest imprint came in July of this year when Dismondy acquired Bucket Filler Books. Known for its line of best-selling children’s titles by Carol McCloud, Bucket Fillers has sold more than three million books and been translated into ten different languages since McCloud’s debut title, “Have You Filled a Bucket Today: A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids.”
