Wheeler Publishing, Inc. is proud to introduce our New affordable paperback Large Print books. We hand-picked a selection of our most recent best-selling titles and are offering them in a paperback version at less than half off the hardcover price. These paperbacks are designed for libraries with limited budgets, or those who would like additional copies of their strong circulating titles. (All Large Print Press paperback titles are currently available from Wheeler in hardcover.).

The quality of these books are in keeping with Wheeler's famous high standards. The trim size is 6X9" and the text is set at 16 point. All have full-color covers and are designed for easy reading and comfort.

Because many libraries enjoy the convenience and savings of our standing order plans, we will offer a Large Print Press Paperback Standing Order. This standing order includes 16 titles annually, and will entitle you to a 10% discount. If you currently have another standing order with Wheeler, we'll pay your shipping and handling as well. Because of our already low prices, we will not offer a 10% discount on individual titles ordered.
