PiXZ – a pocket-sized name for a smart little package. Halsgrove spends a lot of time talking to booksellers and customers as we move our ranges forward and a recurring theme has been requests for titles which build upon the Halsgrove tradition of high quality hardback books tuned to their niche markets, but at a price which makes them even more accessible.
Launched in 2008 as ‘The Spirit of Britain’ test range, we have been delighted by the response from authors, customers and retailers alike to these small books with a big quality punch all priced at £4.99. In the years since the range has expanded to include walks, people, transport, railways and places.
Designed to have a modern and reader friendly appeal to both adults and children and to be posted cheaply, they are ideal as gifts and souvenirs and are collected by a large number of customers.
For the retail market, PiXZ Books are supplied in smart counter packs of ten with a tiny footprint which can often be found next to the till offering an easy 'pick up' sale in both traditional bookshops and increasingly in non traditional outlets including pubs, convenience stores, tourist information points and cafes.
