Oratia Media and Gazelle seal global distribution partnership

Independent publisher Oratia Media and book distributor Gazelle Book Services today announced a partnership to market Oratia’s Libro International books worldwide (excluding the Americas and Australasia).

Gazelle will exclusively distribute Libro International books from its UK base through its sales representatives in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

The agreement comes as a result of negotiations commenced at the October 2012 Frankfurt Book Fair, at which New Zealand was country of honour.

“''The Gazelle mission is to bring choice and availability to our customers, and the quality of Oratia Media’s publishing in both trade and scholarly books left us in no doubt that we just had to bring these books across the globe,” said Mark Trotter, Managing Director of Gazelle Book Services.

“We are delighted to be partnering with Gazelle,” said Oratia Media Managing Director, Peter Dowling. “We launched Libro International in 2009 to connect New Zealand and Italian authors with a world audience, and working with Mark and his team is an important step in that direction."

Gazelle Book Services is a leading international distributor of trade and academic books, with direct sales representation across much of the world.

Established in 1988, Gazelle has its offices and warehouse in historic Lancaster, Lancashire; see www.gazellebookservices.co.uk Oratia Media is a publishing services company based in Oratia, Auckland, established in 2000. It publishes children’s, Maori, history and general nonfiction books through its Libro International arm.
