Gill & Macmillan To Distribute Liberties Press Books

Gill & Macmillan and Liberties Press have announced that from 1st October 2010, Liberties Press titles will be distributed by Gill & Macmillan.

The move follows the closure of CMD Booksource, which ceases trading at the end of September 2010.

In a statement to Irish Publishing News, John Manning, Director of Gill & Macmillan Distribution, said ‘G&M is delighted to take on responsibility for providing distribution services to Liberties Press. We are confident that our extensive distribution experience will enable us to provide them with a first class service for many years to come.’

Peter O’Connell Sales and Marketing Director at Liberties Press said, ‘we look forward to working with Gill & Macmillan distribution and are grateful for all their assistance in making the move across from CMD Booksource so straightforward.’

Liberties decision to move to Gill & Macmillan comes after Mercier Press’ announcement that it will be distributed by Argosy’s new arm, Irish Book Distribution.
