The Indie Next List Holiday Gift Guide flier, which will land in stores in the November Red Box, closes for bookseller submissions on Sunday, September 30. Booksellers should act now to submit their favorite adult and children’s gift books of 2018 across a range of categories, including photography/art, cooking, visual travel, novelty, stocking stuffers, and more.
The 2017 double-sided, full-color flier featured books in the categories of art and photography, entertainment, science and nature, and cooking; each title included a cover image plus a quote from a nominating bookseller. Examples of titles that appeared on last year’s list are:
- Annie Leibovitz: Portraits 2005–2016 by Annie Leibovitz (Phaidon Press)
- Rocket Science for Babies by Chris Ferrie (Sourcebooks Jabberwocky)
- F*ck, That’s Delicious: An Annotated Guide to Eating Well by Action Bronson (Harry N. Abrams)
Booksellers can use the usual methods to nominate a title for the 2018 gift guide: Edelweiss, NetGalley, and the Indie Next List nomination form. Publishers can also collect and forward bookseller nominations.
Questions about the flier can be directed to ABA Program and Development Coordinator Jessica Stauffer.
