Libro International signs Italian and Chinese agency deals

Following the recent Frankfurt Book Fair and ongoing marketing in Europe and Asia, I’m pleased to announce we have signed agency agreements for Libro International books in Italy and China.

In Italy we have appointed the respected Milan-based agency Agenzia Servizi Editoriali to represent all of our children’s titles and selected non-fiction rights for the Italian language. ASE works with both Italian and international publishers to promote quality books in a range of languages; in addition to selling our rights, we’ll also be working with ASE for select rights acquisitions from publishers in Italy.

Meanwhile in China we’ve agreed a fixed-term deal with Chengdu Rightol Agency for representation of eight books in the Chinese market. This established agency based in Chengdu will seek Chinese rights deals for children’s titles along with a couple of standout books from the past year, New Zealand Tattoo and Favourite Māori Legends.

Through these collaborations we hope to have some of our authors appearing in Italian and Chinese editions before too long.
