Batsford’s history dates back to 1843, and since then it has forged a strong reputation for niche publishing.
Many of the publishing subjects, established decades ago and sometimes a century ago are still part of the list today; textile art, practical art and craft; architecture and design; heritage and chess.
Still at the heart of the list are serious books by experts that are both accessible and beautiful. Innovation has always been part of the Batsford tradition which continues to be maintained, whether it is being the first to promote colouring for grown-ups with the bestselling Millie Marotta series, or show textile work as an art form.
Two of our favourite and most popular titles are from Batsford Books, both from Danish woodsman, Frank Egholm
