Pluto signs distribution deal with UCP

Pluto Press has signed a deal with the University of Chicago Press (UCP) to become its new North and South American distributor.

UCP will begin distribution for the British radical publisher from 1st January 2015, distributing, selling and marketing Pluto titles across the territories, excluding Canada.

Anne Beech, publisher and m.d. of Pluto Press said: "We have great hopes for sales of our list in the USA over the coming years."

Chicago marketing director Carol Kasper added: "Pluto publishes high-quality, socially conscious books that we believe will find a good home with our growing group of client presses whose signature is serious non-fiction and scholarship."

Pluto Press has been distributed in the US by Palgrave Macmillan.
