Cottage Door tops fastest growing US indie publishers list

Children’s publisher Cottage Door Press has topped Publisher’s Weekly’s annual list of fastest growing US independent publishers, posting a 558% increase in revenue from 2015-2016.

Cottage Door, which specialises in titles for babies and toddlers, released 18 titles in 2015—it’s first year of publishing—and another 82 titles last year. The publisher is run by ‘children’s publishing industry veterans’ and focuses on high-quality books on ‘on-trend’ topics such as STEM and STEAM, and ‘hot formats’, including padded board books, lift-the-flap, touch-and-feel and books that make sounds.

Five of the 11 publishers on Publisher’s Weekly’s list posted triple-digital revenue growth in 2016 compared to 2014. To see the full list, click here.
