The International Guide to Publishers and Distributors of Large Print. IFLA Professional Reports, No. 4.
Massis, Bruce E.
This guide provides a listing and description of publishers and distributors of large print books (in 12 point type or larger) available in 15 countries. The listings are arranged alphabetically by country and an abstract for each country includes specific information. Designed to be used by librarians and reference persons in their respective countries, the costs of titles are presented in native currencies. The countries included in the guide are: Australia, Austria, Canada, Denmark, France, Federal Republic of Germany, Greenland, Holland, Italy, Japan, Norway, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, and United Kingdom. In certain instances there are no large print producers in a particular country, but there are distributors who sell large print materials acquired elsewhere. Since these distributors are the only direct points of purchase for large print, they are included in the guide. A ready-reference directory, also arranged by country, provides information on all of the publishers and distributors mentioned in the main text. Appendices provide names and addresses of additional publishers in the following countries who have published at least one large print title: Denmark, Federal Republic of Germany, Japan, and Sweden. A selected bibliography of materials used in researching this project is included. (THC)
