It is testament to Iain Riggs talent and competence that throughout their expansion they have managed to remain fiercely committed to producing such unique and high-quality expressions of Australian terroir. We look forward to building a long-term partnership with them in the UK.For Beginners, a publisher specializing in illustrated nonfiction, is switching its distribution from Random House Publisher Services to Red Wheel/Weiser effective today, April 1. For Beginners has 50 titles in print with plans to release five new titles during 2014-15 through Red Wheel/Weiser. For Beginners is a line of heavily illustrated nonfiction books that provide detailed information on a wide range of complex subjects that include Marxism, Foucault, the history of opera, Paul Robeson, postmodernism, philosophy and Dante Malcolm X and many other topics.Dawn Reshen-Doty, publisher and founding partner of For Beginners, is also president of Benay Enterprises, a full service business management firm that oversees the back office operations of a number of small presses, among them, Disinformation, which is also distributed by Red Wheel/Weiser. RW/Ws president Michael Kerber approached Reshen-Doty about making the switch. RWW is expanding their distribution and they offered us a much more hands-on operation, she said. We can be involved in sales, attend more shows; a lot of things not possible for a small publisher with a big distributor like Random House. Its a good fit for us, Reshen-Doty said|
