Radius Books commenced sales and distribution with Consortium on April 1, 2024, while the remaining publishers commence distribution on June 1.

“Each of the new publishers joining us brings a distinct point of view to our roster,” said Julie Schaper, Vice President, Ingram Publisher Services – Consortium. “We look forward to introducing their titles to booksellers, librarians, and consumers in the coming months.”

Titles on the fall list include The Lodgers, Scandal at the Alphorn Factory, and Story Is A State of Mind.

Bitmap Books works with the world’s most experienced writers, designers, and gaming experts to create meticulously researched, visually ambitious video game books that bring classic gaming memories to life. As a design-led publisher, visual quality matters—Bitmap Books not only pursues the best printing quality currently available, they also constantly push the envelope in their production. Notable releases this fall include The Art of the Box and A Guide to Japanese Role-Playing Games.

Concord Theatricals is the world’s most significant theatrical company, comprising the catalogs of R&H Theatricals, Samuel French, Tams-Witmark and The Andrew Lloyd Webber Collection, plus dozens of new signings each year.

Lanternfish Press, founded in Philadelphia in 2013, publishes literature of the rare and strange, including literary and speculative fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and the illustrated Clockwork Editions series.

Key titles coming this fall include Sundown in San Ojuela and My Therapist Says This Grief Journal Is a Good Idea.

Radius Books is a nonprofit publishing company based in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with a focus on contemporary art and photography titles. Radius projects are distinguished in both form and substance: beautiful objects by important artists across media and rank.

Titles releasing this fall include Ruth Duckworth, Victoria Sambunaris: Taxonomy of a Landscape II, and Howard Smith.

Sacred Bones Records is an independent record label and publishing company based in Brooklyn, New York. They have spent the last 15 years crafting a critically respected label that is synonymous with forward-thinking music, books, and culture, and won the Libera Award for Label of the Year in both 2020 and 2022. Their publishing department has released monographs by some of contemporary art’s most vital and recognizable creators from the subversive underground. This fall they will publish Your Dream Home Book from HBO star and filmmaker John Wilson.
