In this setting, a book becomes one option among many, chosen when it is the most appropriate form: whether to display images and text in a tactile object, or because a book can so effectively mark a pause, a milestone reached. Sometimes, because a book can help these publishers reach different audiences and amplify different voices.

The primary research underpinning it comes from a study of more than 50 organisations and includes material from responses to an online survey and semi-structured interviews. Through case studies, it identifies and examines four emerging publishing trends: magazine publishers that also create books; spoken word and live events generating book operations (in a reversal of the book festival model); social enterprise and charitable publishing; and tech-enabled businesses.
