IPG Adds Five New Publishers to Distribution Program

November 16, 2021

CHICAGO, IL—Independent Publishers Group (IPG) has added five new publishers to its flagship trade distribution division.

“This handful of new publishers has come to IPG from a wide variety of other distributors and backgrounds during a somewhat disrupted time for the book industry,” said Richard T. Williams, vice president of publisher development. “I believe this is a testament to IPG doubling down on partnership, as our services continue to expand to meet the needs of clients from all walks of publishing.”

Imagine and Wonder, whose print distribution with IPG will begin on January 1, 2022, is a boutique New York publisher. Initially devoted to children’s literature, Imagine and Wonder’s list now includes fiction and nonfiction titles for children and adults. Imagine and Wonder’s digital distribution started with IPG earlier this year. “The move to IPG for all of our book distribution needs gives us a new and greater opportunity to place our titles into all corners of the market,” said Steven Wilson, president of Imagine and Wonder. “Our relationship with IPG began via their digital distribution service early last year and now the inclusion of our print books creates a wonderful new level to our relationship with the incredible team of professionals at IPG.”

Kitchen Ink Publishing began its distribution with IPG in July 2021. Bringing to the table a passionate team of testers, editors, food stylists and photographers and more than 60-plus years of publishing experience, their cookbooks introduce children of all ages to cooking through easy and delicious recipes.

IPG will begin distributing Phoenix Books and Stygian Sky Media on January 1, 2022. Phoenix Books is a longtime audiobook licensee and recently reactivated trade publisher, starting with their crime fiction book by notorious Hollywood fixer Anthony Pellicano. Stygian Sky is a publisher of original crime, thriller and horror-noir titles and non-fiction photo books and memoirs.

Overcup Press will begin distribution with IPG on March 1, 2022. The Portland-based publisher founded by Patrick McDonald and Rachel Bell specializes in non-fiction with literary non-fiction, art, travel and design titles.
