Global publishing back on front foot

Jun 20 2011

The world's largest pub­lishers have begun growing again after weathering the global recession over the past three years. According to the annual ranking of global pub­lishing performance, compiled on behalf of Livres Hebdo, Buchreport, Publishers Weekly and The Bookseller, publishing revenues in 2010 have overtaken the total ­revenues for 2008 and 2009.

The survey is in marked contrast to bookselling. Of the top booksellers, only Amazon has grown its sales over the equivalent time frame.
