Chronicle to Distribute Hardie Grant Books in US/Canada

Shelf Awareness

Starting with the Fall 2016 season, Chronicle Books and its Canadian distributor, Raincoast Books, will distribute Hardie Grant Books, Melbourne, Australia, in North America. The companies will sell approximately 40 titles a season; for the last season, Chronicle has distributed Quadrille Publishing, part of Hardie Grant Publishing Group.
As part of the agreement, Hardie Grant Publishing will hire a marketing and publicity executive, who will work on both Quadrille and Hardie Grant Books and be located at Chronicle Books's office in San Francisco.

Founded in 1997 in Melbourne, with offices now in London, too, Hardie Grant Books publishes illustrated books in categories including food and drink, design and interiors, humor and advice. Its internationally bestselling authors include Greg and Lucy Malouf, Megan Hess, Domonique Bertolucci, Kit Kemp and the Green Kitchen blog authors David Frenkiel and Luise Vindahl.

Chronicle president Jack Jensen commented: "After a longstanding partnership working with Hardie Grant to distribute our products in Australia, we are thrilled that we can now bring their future lists to the North American market."
