Why We're Doing What We're Doing

Co-founded four years ago by a literary agent concerned about the growing dominance of a few retailers imposing increasingly onerous terms on publishers, and by a former head of digital for Sothebys.com who wanted to use his web expertise for something culturally meaningful, Zola Books has always had a core mission of empowering diversity in book retail.

We believe that the “mediators” – booksellers, reviewers, and of course, publishers – provide real value to readers, and finding a way to manifest that value is our obsession. In a moment where every stakeholder in the book world should have a direct route to their readers, Zola Books' services show the way.

“Don’t undertake a project unless it is manifestly important and nearly impossible.”

— Edwin Land, founder of Polaroid
