Summer Books Catalogue 2021

We are pleased to announce that this year we will be producing a Summer Books catalogue. 
As with the Christmas Books catalogue, this will be a partnership with our friends at Nielsen and Gardners. We’re aiming for the catalogue to arrive into bookshops the week commencing 17th May (just after we announce the shortlist for the Indie Book Awards on Friday 14th May).
Following another successful year for the Booksellers Association’s Christmas Books catalogue we are offering for Summer Books:
- Subsidy for door-dropsSummer Books 2021
- Free advert templates and subsidy for local consumer advertising
- Free Summer Books social media assets for you to use to promote your shop and the catalogue
- Option to include your QR code on your back cover overprint
- Introduction written by Nikesh Shukla
- Free catalogue dispenser
- Free digital edition of the catalogue through the Book2Look widget advanced marketing tool
Summer Books titles are chosen by independent booksellers for independent booksellers and their customers.
The order deadline is 1 April 2021.
The cost is:
- 300 copies £45
- 500 copies £60
- 1000 copies £75
Smaller quantities of non-overprinted catalogues (without your shop’s overprint on the front or the back covers) will be
available to order from Gardners Books.
