Richard Abel developed vast experience in the publishing and library communities, and brings great perspicuity to his discussion of the publishing industry. In 2008 he received the Jack D. Rittenhouse Award from the Publishers Association of the West. An announcement of the award states: “Richard worked in a bookstore, became a bookstore owner, started a private press for limited edition books, founded a company that grew into an international library distributor, founded a book marketing and distribution company, started a trade publishing company that has grown into a well respected mid-sized publisher, and is the author of numerous articles and a forthcoming book.” []
