F+W International will publish the backlist of its David & Charles imprint through a new print-on-demand partnership with Ingram.
The books will be released under a new imprint, D&C Heritage, with F+W International looking to resurrect titles going back to David & Charles’ founding in 1961. The publisher focused on a range of hobbies and niche areas, releasing a range of titles on Britain’s canals and railways. After its purchase by F+W in 2001, it focused on crafts and creative arts publishing, alongside F+W’s direct-to-consumer e-commerce businesses.
F+W International m.d. James Woollam said it would now be looking for authors and contributors to old titles to come forward and help update the publisher’s records, as well as claim royalties.
