Established in 1971, IPG was the first organization specifically created for the purpose of marketing titles from independent presses to the book trade.

IPG was acquired by Chicago Review Press in 1987. Clients include publishers from the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, Israel, Spain and other countries.
