Nosy Crow Team Up With Allen & Unwin for AUS/NZ Market

| No Comments

Nosy Crow has just announced that it has appointed Allen & Unwin as its representative for printed books in Australia and New Zealand effective immediately.
Nosy Crow's first books will be published in the UK in January 2011, and in May in Australia and New Zealand. Allen & Unwin has been voted Australian Publisher of the Year nine times, is Australia's leading independent publisher, and represents and distributes important UK lists including Bloomsbury, Faber & Faber and Profile.The deal was negotiated in Sydney this month.

Kate Wilson, MD of Nosy Crow, says:
"We've taken our time to investigate our options carefully. Though I hadn't had any experience of working with Allen & Unwin before, their excellent reputation preceded them, and I feel very proud that they chose to include Nosy Crow in their portfolio of clients. In all these things - and particularly for Nosy Crow given our scale and culture - a sense of affinity is important: I felt confident that everyone I met at Allen & Unwin understood Nosy Crow and our goals. And the fact that they're based in Crows Nest in Sydney is an additional happy omen!"

Robert Gorman, CEO of Allen & Unwin, says:
"At Allen & Unwin we love partnering with clever independent publishers. That is why we are delighted to be representing Nosy Crow in Australia and New Zealand. We greatly look forward to helping them grow their business in the ANZ market."

Liz Bray, Children's Book Director of Allen & Unwin, says:
"We've been following Nosy Crow's activities with great interest since they announced their establishment in the UK earlier this year and admired the energy, savvy and passion of their team as well as the books they're producing. We're thrilled to have the opportunity to work with them in Australia and New Zealand on books from much-loved creators like Axel Scheffler as well as new stars including S.C. Ransom. Nosy Crow's innovative, child-focused books have great potential in our markets and will be a fantastic complement to our own publishing and the wonderful children's lists we distribute."
