Each subject area has carefully curated recommendations, accompanying blogs full of rich content drawn from the books and focused social media accounts to drive consumer engagement. Direct to consumer sales will launch from 31st August in the USA and 30th September in the UK.

Marcus Leaver, CEO, The Quarto Group commented: "What better way could there be to enable consumers to discover more books than to present them clearly in response to their interest and searches? We want to be able to connect our books and their authors directly with consumers in a way that is responsive to what they're searching for. We know that what draws people to our books is that they provide critical and dependable information about the subjects they're passionate about. With the enormous breadth of subjects about which we have real expertise, deep content reservoirs, and fantastic communities around our authors, it is clear that Quarto really does know. We're excited at the opportunity this gives us to engage consumers and develop deeper and lasting relationships and provide more meaning to the Quarto brand."
