Catalogs, Direct Mail, and Fliers
The University of Illinois Press produces two print seasonal catalogs of new books per year; the Spring catalog presents books due for publication February-August, and the Fall catalog announces titles published September-January. Your book will appear in one of these seasonal lists and the corresponding catalog will be distributed to over 8,000 recipients including booksellers, wholesalers, sales representatives, libraries, review media, foreign and domestic rights agents, and conference attendees. We also post PDFs of the catalogs online. We will send you a copy of the catalog that announces your book. Please let us know if you need any additional copies.
The Direct Mail and Advertising Manager organizes direct-mail efforts to promote your book to targeted buyers. These pieces are intended to promote current titles and to introduce backlist books with proven sales potential to new audiences. These direct-mail campaigns are collaborative efforts created in consultation with UIP's acquisition editors.
Please contact the Catalog and Copywriting Coordinator if you would like a flier sent to you as an electronic PDF file for your forthcoming book.
