Aerial Media Company is a new experience in the field of publishing from the Netherlands. Publishing in the widest sense of the word and within all possible genres. Aerial has close connections in the entire field of publishing and enjoys being part of it. From the creative start all the way to the consumer, without the complicated aspects of the ‘old-school publishing industry’. We sell through every desired channel, from B2B, B2C, online, rights to digital publishing. We would like to point out that we hold the physical bookshop very dear. We believe in the human contact between customer, seller and product.
We publish crosswise in Dutch and English. For that we alliance with foreign parties or we publish and distribute ourselves. Our English language books are sold worldwide by Global Book Sales and in the US, Consortium Book Sales and Distribution, part of the Perseus Group, act as our sales department and warehouse via Global Book Sales (see also International sales).
We treasure for the cooperation with international partners and we can easily adapt to their wishes and desires because of our compact company structure.
Aerial started in March 2014. The knowledge, hands-on experience and the established goodwill are large. We have access to the best editors, designers and printers and we have excellent relations with retailers in the Netherlands & Belgium.
