The New Millennium Experience Company (NMEC) is in discussion with a number of publishers through its licensing agency about the production of a range of Millennium Experience books for all ages. These books will be sold through high street bookshops, retailers and through other distribution channels. As regards the Dome, the aim is to provide a range of special edition Millennium Experience books, and other printed material to meet visitor needs. These will be available through the NMEC's own retailing arrangements in the Dome.
