UK-based start-up publisher Bookoli, has signed a joint venture agreement with Australian publisher Hinkler, to launch Curious Universe UK, a new mass market publisher.
The deal will see Curious Universe UK market Bookoli brands and products worldwide, while Hinkler will expand its presence further in the UK, Ireland and various co-edition markets through the new entity when it launches next month.
Curious Universe UK, which will have its head office based in Bath, will be actively recruiting to grow the team working alongside existing Bookoli and Hinkler UK staff as it expands globally.
The agreement will also offer the opportunity to leverage Hinkler’s recent expansion into the arts, craft, stationery and toy industries via a newly created company based in Hong Kong.
