We are a small team, and work extremely hard with some wonderful authors, editors, cartographers and designers to make the guides as trustworthy as possible – reliable, accurate and attractively presented. Our reputation is the result of who we are and what we do. We believe in the Cicerone brand, and work hard to tell the world about it.
You can order Cicerone guidebooks from a variety of places; it's really down to what suits you and your business needs the best. Our books are warehouse and distributed by Booksource, and there are also a wide range of wholesalers where you can source our guidebooks. You can find more information here, as ever if you have any questions, or want some advice then just email us or call on 01539 562069.
Start by looking at the titles which are important for your area. Then look at some of the best selling British titles, particularly the guidebooks to some of the more popular National Trails and walking areas such as the Lake District, Scotland and Snowdonia. Finally consider a small selection of techniques books, such as Map and Compass. This should give you a good introductory range. If you think you may be able to sell overseas walking guides, contact us for guidance or take a look at our bestsellers list.
We will never try to persuade you to stock something inappropriate, and will be happy to help you adjust your range of titles to get the best return on the space. If space is an issue, we may be able to help by loaning you a display spinner free of charge, for as long as you need it. We can:
We send catalogues to all retailers on our database twice each year. In addition, we issue around four trade newsletters each year. The newsletters highlight the publishing programme for the coming months, list recent titles and current best sellers, and provide background information and news about Cicerone.
As well as these various communications, we also try to visit many of our trade customers, both in the outdoor trade and bookshops. If you would like one of us to visit you to discuss any aspect of trading with Cicerone, contact Sarah Spencer by email, or call on 01539 562069 to arrange a convenient time to visit.
