This is the third of three longish posts about our newest collection Large Print. The first was aimed at our readers and the second at libraries. This one is aimed at owners of book stores and comic shops.
Over the years we've heard from many of you that Unshelved books do really well as a hand sell to your best customers: book nerds. Print out some of your favorite strips and post them around your store. Then tell them where they can get more.
But we've also heard feedback that our previous books were a little too big, a little too pricey, and a little too schizophrenic. So we made this one smaller, less expensive, and dropped the Unshelved Book Club strips. When we debuted our book at ALA last month we saw the results - first-time buyers snapped them up in droves, and many of them ended up coming back for our previous volumes.
We invite you to see what Large Print: an Unshelved collection by Gene Ambaum & Bill Barnes can do for you. It's available directly from our distributor Ingram Publisher Services or via most wholesalers, ISBN 978-0-9740353-7-6.
