Unicorn Publishing Group And Royal Museums Greenwich

Unicorn Publishing Group (UPG) is pleased to announce that it has signed a global sales and distribution agreement with Royal Museums Greenwich for the Museum's publishing programme.


Royal Museums Greenwich comprises the National Maritime Museum, the Royal Observatory, the clipper ship Cutty Sark and the Queen's House.


Royal Museums Greenwich's publishing programme currently comprises ten titles, with two forthcoming for November 2019 and a plan to publish around ten new titles per year thereafter. These will be published under the imprints of the National Maritime Museum and Royal Observatory Greenwich.


Unicorn Sales & Distribution, the marketing arm of Unicorn Publishing Group, will take over all sales and distribution of Royal Museums Greenwich titles from November 2019, with stock being available through Marston Book Services and University of Chicago Press in the U.S.


Unicorn Publishing Group's Sales Director Simon Perks says: ‘Royal Museums Greenwich has an exciting publishing programme planned and Unicorn Publishing is delighted to be representing them around the world starting in November 2019 with two exciting new titles, On the Line: The Story of the Greenwich Meridian and Cookery for Seamen.'


Kirsty Schaper, Publishing Manager at Royal Museums Greenwich says: ‘We are thrilled to be partnering with Unicorn Publishing to bring our titles to new audiences in the UK and in other international markets. Our growing list is diverse with topics ranging from astronomy and time, to art and maritime history, as well as a number of children's books, so Unicorn Publishing is the perfect avenue for sales and distribution. We look forward to a prosperous collaboration with Unicorn Publishing for many years to come.'
