April 11, 2016

Alison Lazarus, President of Sales at Macmillan, said: "We are thrilled to add responsibility for Canadian sales and distribution for Bloomsbury and to now have all of North America. This will enhance our already great long-term working relationship between Macmillan and Bloomsbury. We look forward to growing Bloomsbury's business in Canada and working closely with Raincoast to do that."

Founded in 1997 in Melbourne, and now publishing from both London and Australia, Hardie Grant Books is a leading publisher of illustrated books in a number of categories including food and drink, design and interiors, humour and advice.

Chronicle Books and its Canadian distributor Raincoast Books, will be responsible for selling approximately 40 titles a season, starting with the Fall 2016 season.

Hardie Grant Publishing will hire a marketing and publicity executive to work on both Quadrille and Hardie Grant Books situated at the Chronicle Books' office in San Francisco. "Hardie Grant is a market leader in English language illustrated book publishing," says Jack Jensen, President of Chronicle Books. "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."

"We are delighted that Chronicle Books will now extend its sales expertise to both our imprints Hardie Grant and Quadrille, and we look forward to working closely with them," says Julie Pinkham, HGP's Group Managing Director.
