Last week, We Are Acuity received the sad news that Amazon will be closing THE BOOK DEPOSITORY LIMITED business this week as part of its recent cutbacks.
The Guardian wrote: According to the trade magazine the The Bookseller, an email sent out to vendors and publishing partners explained that Book Depository will be closing, and that the last date customers will be able to place orders is 26 April.
“Over the coming weeks we will complete a winding down of the business, including discontinuing our listings as a marketplace seller and closing our website,” Andy Chart, head of vendor management, wrote.
“I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you, from everyone at Book Depository and our book-loving customers, for your supportive partnership over the years in helping us to make printed books more accessible to readers around the world,” he concluded.
This was hugely disappointing for us to hear, but it will also have had a massive impact on the fantastic team of people working there.
We just wanted to take this opportunity to say how much we’ve loved working with the Book Depository Marketing Team (Mitch Lang, Céline Hasboun, Sofía Guindo, Caroline Ordever, Emilie Reichert, Julia Katharina Klein) and how much we’ll miss producing the amazing and highly effective creative work that we have produced together. But we know this is not goodbye, but more a see you again soon!
To celebrate this relationship, we have put together a show reel that features a selection of our best work from the past six years of working together.
