LUP partners with Littman Library

Liverpool University Press is to be the publishing partner of the Littman Library of Jewish Civilization (LLJC).
 
As well as taking over print distribution, LUP will launch the Littman E-Library of Jewish Civilization, making the library’s list available digitally for the first time. It is assuming sales, marketing, and distribution responsibilities for all titles next month.
 
Founded in 1965 by Louis Littman, the London-based LLJC has been run by c.e.o Ludo Craddock and managing editor Connie Webber for the last 25 years. It publishes around a dozen titles each year.
 
Craddock, who will retire as c.e.o later this year, said: “We are delighted to have found in Liverpool University Press what we believe to be the ideal partner for us: an award-winning press with an established reputation in academic publishing, an appreciation for high editorial and production standards, and a record of achievement in marketing and e-book publishing. We are confident that this new publishing partnership will provide stability for the Library’s future and with the greater resources available (especially human ones) enhance our visibility and sales, and provide the necessary basis for future growth.”
 
LUP m.d. Anthony Cond said: “Built and generously supported by the Littman family, and flourishing under the leadership of Ludo Craddock and Connie Webber, the LLJC is internationally recognised for its outstanding commitment and contribution to its field.”
 
Liverpool University Press takes over sales and distribution for Littman titles with effect from 1st March, with stock available via Turpin Distribution (UK, Europe, and ROW) and Oxford University Press (North America).
