In the post-printed-book era, how has distribution to bookstores changed? Indie author seeks distribution across the world!

For my third book, I'd like to see about getting a distributor for the print version. While I'm open to working with a publisher, the subject matter (e.g. Korean travel) doesn't lend itself to a mass market, and I'm concerned a publisher won't consider it a lucrative enough market to make it worth their effort. My previous book (an e-book with print on demand available) has done better than expected - and the bestseller in its category - but I'm really hoping to up the ante this time around.
Ideally, there's a publisher out there with enough distribution to make a niche book available to larger bookstores, without overly restricting e-book sales. The goal is greater awareness, greater revenue, and eventually, world domination.
A tall order, perhaps, but one I hope you MeFites can help with!
