Bauer and Dean Publishers is taking up the time-honored tradition of subscription publishing begun in 17th-century England. Subscribers pay in advance for the opportunity to acquire a certain title. In acknowledgement of a subscriber’s contribution, his or her name is included in a list printed at the front of the book.

In 1688 the first illustrated edition of Milton’s Paradise Lost was published by subscription. The subscriber list names more than 500 prominent individuals. We are soliciting subscribers to a series of books, not just an individual title. The different levels reflect different buying strategies.

Join our growing and prominent list of subscribers that includes, Bunny Williams, Charlotte Moss, S.O.M., Robert A.M. Stern, and the New York chapter of the AIA.

All subscription amounts serve as a credit with the publishing house from which orders will be deducted (the cost of book after relevant discount, the shipping charges, and sales tax when applicable).

All subscribers will have the option to re-subscribe when the initial subscription amount is spent.

These are reference books for the trade, so subscription amounts might be tax deductible. Please check with your accountant.

The subscription list will only be printed in the Pattern Book series (including the subset of furniture histories). The subscription amount, however, may be used to purchase any quantity of any title Bauer and Dean publishes. There are no restrictions.

We will contact subscribers well in advance of a title's release date to take orders. We want to ensure that subscribers' copies are held in reserve and ship out before other orders. Due to the small print runs, there may be an occasion when a title sells out before being released and before a reprint can be scheduled. However, subscribers will always have their orders fulfilled in the first print run and receive their books before retail and wholesale orders ship.

Note:
-The autobiography series will not be reprinted. The Autobiography of a Fashion Designer: Ralph Rucci is limited to 3,000 copies.
- Our books will be available only through our website, or select bookstores and high-end venues.
