A note for 2012 including details of new offerings from Mark Hix, James Martin, Cath Kidston and the Two Greedy Italians.
With the dazzling array of options available for the creation of illustrated content, and with a market place that is ever more complex, Quadrille is relishing the opportunities that these challenges present, and within this heady maelstrom, we offer one of our most impressive lists, as varied as ever, as innovative as ever, as exquisite as ever, and as saleable as ever!
Starting the year with health books, we have Target your Fat Spots by Max Tomlinson, essential reading for everyone after the holiday excesses; Elizabeth Peyton Jones’s answer to botox, Eat Yourself Young, guaranteed reading for all over 35; and the amazing Instructions for Happiness and Success,
offering you your heart’s desires if you follow it. Each has a new message, a large target audience and is keenly priced to achieve strong sales.
Our new food titles continue this approach. We are following the fabulous success of Two Greedy Italians, which became an instant bestseller in the UK and has gone on to sell in 14 languages, with Two Greedy Italians Eat Italy,
whose focus is on the very distinctive terrains and their products and how to cook them to perfection. We are delighted to welcome James Martin back with his sure-fire bestselling title, Slow.
Mark Hix has completely reinvented the concept of baking, while Anjum Anand addresses the ever-popular subject of vegetarian Indian food.
Our new authors include Sam Stern and his splendid Virgin to Veteran,
Tom Kitchin whose Kitchin Suppers really shows you how to make in your home the speedy delicious dishes he does in his; Nathan Outlaw’s tome on fish is destined to be the book on the subject for years to come,
while Monica Galetti brings a brilliant range of new flavours to everyday cuisine. And Reza has brought a jewel-like quality to his irresistible Indian food. We also have exceptional new books from Alice Hart,
A.A. Gill, Josceline Dimbleby, Peggy Porschen and Tamasin Day-Lewis.
Our craft list goes from strength to strength, too. Cath Kidston’s Sew! with phenomenal sales of over 280,000 copies and translated into 10 languages, has set a new bench mark. The witty Everything Alice
will be followed this year by Everything Oz, a scintillating collection based on the great wizard and his friends. We have a brilliant new collection of Cath Kidston lines for this year, and Erika Knight’s outstanding Crochet Workshop.
We are thrilled to have signed the Vogue on Designers Collection, whose first titles, covering the great designers of the modern age, will be launched this autumn at fabulously affordable prices. And Max Milligan’s lyrical photographic Soul of Scotland is yet another jewel in our collection.
The old adage of being bold in times of adversity was never more evident! We hope you will sell these books with the enthusiasm with which we’ve created them, and we thank you so much for your support of Quadrille.
