Midpoint Trade Books Begins Distributing Bunker Hill Publishing of New Hampshire.

New York, NY, October 26, 2012 --( Midpoint Trade Books has signed a distribution deal with Bunker Hill Publishing, a New Hampshire-based independent publisher previously distributed through the National Book Network. In addition to trade format books, Bunker Hill will release titles in digital form through Midpoint Trade's e-book program.

“Selling quality, real writing, good design, interesting books, is now more difficult than it has ever been,” says Ib Bellew, co-founder of Bunker Hill Publishing. “You need to find the right distribution, think out of the box, abandon cumbersome old fashioned methods and embrace change without compromising content. To do all that you need an innovative flexible partner who can take your ideas to the market. We are delighted to be working with Midpoint.”

“Bunker Hill is exactly the kind of trade publisher we are looking for,” says Midpoint CEO Eric Kampmann. “They are creative and engaged, and they have an excellent backlist.”

Upcoming fall titles from Bunker Hill will include "The White-Footed Mouse," a children's picture book from NPR commentator Willem Lange, and "The Swordfish Hunters," professor and museum curator Bruce Bourque's exploration of Maine's prehistoric swordfish-hunting tribe.

Founded in 2002 by husband-and-wife team Carole and Ib Bellew, Bunker Hill Publishing is known for its educational adult and children's books published in collaboration with museums and international research organizations, including The Smithsonian, The Museum of Natural History, the Library of Congress, and The National Air & Space Museum.

In 2007, Bunker Hill teamed up with the new Spitzer Hall of Human Origins in the American Museum of Natural History for educational titles "Bones, Brains, and DNA" and "Brain: A 21st-Century Look at a 400-Million-Year-Old Organ." Another notable backlist title, "The Cherry Blossom Festival"—published with the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC—was reissued last year in a 100th-anniversary special edition.
