About Quantum and what makes us different

We developed Quantum, by merging our successful individual sales agencies, at a time when it became clear that there was strategic merit in pooling resources. By working with the very best sales colleagues, we can offer our publishers comprehensive, rigorous and professional coverage of the UK and Irish book markets. We are a limited company and not a confederation of agents. We are members of the IPG.

We feel passionately we should only carry a manageable and focused portfolio of high quality publishers. Our trade customers in bookshops and other suppliers are extremely busy, and we only have a very finite time in which to present your titles. We therefore work with a carefully selected portfolio of publisher clients, and restrict the numbers of our client base, so that we can give each of them the individual attention that they deserve. This is central to our ethos. All of our clients are extremely important to us, and we have worked with most of them for many years. Quantum has an enviable national reputation for the close and friendly, but professional relationships that we maintain with our clients and our colleagues in the book trade.
