Beginning January 1, 2010, Perseus Distribution will handle sales and distribution for books by Anne Geddes, the photographer known for her work with children. Geddes’s books were previously published and distributed in North America by Andrews McMeel. Under the new arrangement, the books will be published under the Anne Geddes imprimatur.

Sabrina McCarthy, v-p of client services for Perseus Distribution, said Geddes plans to launch a new photography line in the fall 2010; 25 titles are tentatively planned. Kel Geddes, Anne Geddes’s husband and director of the Geddes Group, said, “As Anne’s artistry continues to evolve, we look forward to presenting Perseus with her compelling and exciting new projects and to a long-term and successful affiliation.”

Geddes’s images have been published in 83 countries; her books have sold more than 18 million copies worldwide and been translated into 24 languages.
