'UQP non fiction publisher Alexandra Payne examines the resurgence of feminist books, their viability and the price of moving from the margins to the mainstream.

I have a bookcase at home that tells an abridged history of feminist publishing, from The Second Sex to The Female Eunuch to Bad Feminist and then some. As a publisher and an out and proud feminist, I have often looked at this bookcase and longed for what I thought was the glory days of feminist publishing - the 1970s. How I wished I'd been around to work for The Women's Press or Virago or the Feminist Press in those early years. I wanted it old school.'

    'Inefficiencies in the supply chain, the importance of data and competition for readers' leisure time were big issues raised at this year's leading Edge Books industry forum.

    Hopes for an improved supply chain seem to rest of TitlePage, which the Australian Publishers Association is keen to develop, but which is likely to require substantial investment from publishers and booksellers. Changes are already afoot in distribution, with Penguin Random House consolidating its two UBD distribution centres in Melbourne and changing its freight partner from Toll Group to TNT Australia to 'improve service levels and speed to market'.'
