IPG is the original independent book sales and distribution company in the United States. It was founded in 1971 to exclusively market titles from independent client publishers to the international book trade.
Independent Publishers Group was founded in 1971, the first organization specifically created for the purpose of representing titles from independent presses to the book trade.
Then as now, small and mid-size publishers had great difficulties selling their books effectively because they could not attract the services of good sales reps and because booksellers were reluctant to absorb the cost of opening new vendor accounts and the high transaction costs and shipping charges that result from small orders.
