Commenting on the deal Chris Nelson, Dover Publications Head of International Sales, said “We are pleased to have agreed new terms with David and Charles to build on the sales growth we enjoyed under this team while at F&W Media.”
David and Charles Managing Director, James Woollam, said “We’re delighted to be working with Dover, and for many of us this continues a long-standing relationship with the imprint and the team in New York. Dover is unique list in its scale and breadth of categories and brings with it many opportunities for growth in the book trade and across a range of online and retail accounts.”
