Fans of Welsh lore and legend will be pleased to know that Laurence Main’s unique guide to 20 historical walking routes in Wales, The Spirit Paths of Wales, is available again from this week, as Cicerone’s first trial of the latest print on demand (POD) technology.
We launched our first six titles into the world of short-run printing at the end of February – Walking the French Gorges, The Lake District Anglers’ Guide, A Walker’s Guide to the Lancaster Canal, Walking in the Wolds, Roads & Tracks of the Lake District and The Relative Hills of Britain. It’s all going smoothly and three of them are already well into their second run. So we’ve decided to go one stage further and try genuine POD.
What this means for our readers is that they can get hold of a book that would otherwise stay out of print because of the relatively small demand – they just order it and get it, just as normal. What it means for us is that we don’t have to print and warehouse lots of books in order to keep our customers happy. Definitely a win-win situation. Keep checking the website for other ‘reprinting’ or ‘out of print’ titles finding a new lease of life!
