Ingram Publisher Services Announces Sales Agreement with Ginkgo Press13-Nov-2018
BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA—Ingram Publisher Services®, an Ingram brand, announces that current distribution client, Ginkgo Press will add sales services in time for the Spring and Summer 2019 season. Starting January 2, Ingram Publisher Services will handle both sales and distribution in the United States and Canada.
“We are pleased to expand our relationship with Ginkgo Press. Ginkgo Press is well-respected as a fine art and Illustrated book publisher and we are pleased to expand our relationship. With our vast networks, we are ready to help their content reach more readers,” said Mark Ouimet, Ingram Publisher Services VP and General Manager.
“It’s such a pleasure to get to work with a group of people like IPS. We’re looking forward to the partnership,” said Winona Wagner, Editor of Ginkgo Press.
GINGKO PRESS was established in 1985 by Mo Cohen and Julie von der Ropp in Hamburg, Germany. In 1991 we launched Gingko Press Inc. in Santa Rosa, California at the offices and warehouse of John Martin’s Black Sparrow Press.
After moving to Corte Madera, California in 1994, we began distributing Taschen America to the book trade, and started accepting original manuscripts for publication in 1998. After 10 years in Marin, we moved to Berkeley, California we remain today.
In 1999 Gingko Press purchased world rights to iconoclast educator, media pioneer and author Marshall McLuhan. McLuhan’s writings on culture and technology have given us a new paradigm for understanding history, through our tools and innovations, distilled in his famous phrase “the medium is the message.”
Always on the lookout for shifts in our social order via new media, McLuhan foresaw the ascendancy of software over hardware, the end of privacy, the elevation of pop culture, and claimed that the city’s streets have superseded the universities, museums and galleries as the dominant educational and artistic platform.
We’ve also begun publishing ventures with Juxtapoz Magazine, ObeyGiant, Upper Playground, Victionary, and Kill Your Idols. A new imprint, Rebel Arts, will publish fiction and poetry. Like McLuhan, Gingko Press is always on the lookout for shifts in our social order via published media.
