Market Research: Coffee Table Book Publishing

Goal prepare a professional report that addresses ALL of the following questions/areas:

Industry size and trends:

-In the US, what have been the largest selling coffee table books in the past decade? If possible, detail how many units have they sold and approximate retail sales price? Any dominate authors? Entities? Are there any estimates on global sales or titles that have done well globally?

-In the US, is this book segment growing? Shrinking? Is it growing/shrinking compared to printed books in general?

-Who are the major US publishers in this genre?

Path(s) to publication:

Outline common paths to US publication.

-Briefly list the pros and cons.

-Brief overview/estimate of typical costs of each path.

For the path of going with an established US book publisher:

-Detail the submission process.

How much work does a publisher/agent need to see to offer a publishing deal?

-Detail the typical terms of a publishing deal.

What are common ranges of advances, payout and royalties? Buybacks? (Again for pictorial/coffee table style books only.) What are common things to be aware of?

-Are literary/picture agents commonly utilized in the search for a publisher? If so:

-What are the typical terms for a literary agent in this genre?

-Who are the major literary agents who have been successful with this type of work?

Please minimize statements of opinion (hard-numbers/research is preferred). You should supply a separate reference document that cites/documents all sources of information with credentials and contact info. (For example if you speak with a literary agent who describes the process you should provide the name, background/experience and contact information of this agent. If you quote an internet article, links to the article are required.) To demonstrate that you read these instructions thoroughly, please use the word “judge” somewhere in your cover-letter. All of the questions above which outline this project must be answered before the project is deemed complete.

Your final deliverable should be a professional looking power-point or pdf document which conveys your findings. What will enable you to win this job? Preference will be given to candidates who either a: have a background in the US publishing industry and/or b: have prior experience in professional research projects (provide examples please.) The research is expected to be completed within two weeks from the start date (when we award you the job).

Applicants should apply with a cover letter/paragraph briefly stating your background and why you are qualified for this research project and your bid.
