Stuttgart, November 23, 2020. Bookstores can once again obtain around 6,000 titles from independent publishers from the bar range of KNV Zeitfracht. This measure was developed in close coordination with the Kurt Wolff Foundation, which this year celebrates the 20th anniversary of its founding and is committed to promoting a diverse publishing and literary scene.
KNV Zeitfracht’s cash department has reconciled its databases with those of the publishing houses in the Kurt Wolff Foundation. All deliverable titles that could previously only be ordered through the publisher are now listed as procurement titles and given the report number 18 (“Will be procured”). Booksellers can order these titles from KNV Zeitfracht and obtain them within a few days together with the bar range. Previously, the titles were marked in the KNV Zeitfracht database with the report number 17 (“We do not carry or no longer carry”).
The Foundation’s catalog, “It’s all about the book 2020 / 21,” can also be ordered free of charge from the bar range under KNV No. 17 95 53 85. The new edition of the catalog presents nearly ninety independent publishers, including the previous winners of the Kurt Wolff Prize and the Kurt Wolff Sponsorship Award
