Founded in 1990, D.A.P. promotes and sells exceptional books on art, photography, architecture, design, and avant-garde culture from the world's most prestigious imprints. Among D.A.P.'s long-time clients are museums such as the Guggenheim, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, and the Walker Art Center; inventive independent publishers such as Siglio Press, Radius, Karma, and J & L Books; and literary presses Exact Change and Wakefield Press.

Artists and photographers represented include household names such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Frida Kahlo and Hayao Miyazaki, but D.A.P. also prides itself on working closely with client publishers to publicize artists such as Hilma af Klint as they are first becoming known to a general audience.

"We've worked closely with D.A.P. in the U.S. for many years and have had great success selling into other international markets through Two Rivers Distribution," said Meredith Greenhouse, Vice President, Ingram Publisher Services U.K. and Global Sales. "To bring their stunning books to a wider readership in the U.K. and Europe is a privilege."

D.A.P. founder Sharon Helgason Gallagher cites the efficiencies IPS UK can bring to the business of the export markets. "Having coordinated warehouses as well as one data source across many geographical markets will help us make better—and faster—supply decisions for our clients," Helgason Gallagher said. "Ingram has always been an honest, reliable, and helpful partner—from the very early days of our business. Ingram's support over the last three decades has played an important role in our growth. We're pleased to expand the scope of our relationship."
