Change in Distribution For Beatnik Publishing

Beatnik have decided to resume distribution with David Bateman Ltd (they are currently with Potton & Burton), as their business model has undergone a structural change. With the combination of overseas distribution projects in 2017, and mobile headquarters, Bateman's Auckland location will make the coordination process simpler. 
Changing distributors isn't the only move for Beatnik this year - they have come to a distribution agreement with Australian and UK partners, and with that, the development of future products for those markets. Of course, this beloved indie publisher will stay true to its roots and continue to create beautiful books that perform well on the local market.
