Books to inspire. Books to entertain.

Books of wonder. Books to explain...

Deep in the heart of the British Library’s St Pancras building you will find a dedicated, and very active, book publishing division which celebrates the very best of the collections and tell the stories of the Library.

On this website we present details of the 40–50 books we publish each year including award-winning exhibition catalogues, class-leading fiction series and, of course, our often playful but always inspiring books about books.

These pages also include insightful behind-the-scenes blogs, author contributions, our latest news and details of live and digital events. Booksellers and reviewers can also find trade and contact information.
