Our new catalogue - Spring & Summer 2020

Tuesday, 14 January 2020

Browse our latest catalogue and discover new books, from A Little History of Poetry to a new history of flowers. Authors include John Carey, Kasia Boddy, Peter Burke, Michael Peppiatt and many more!

Fresh, colourful and fragrant… There are no end of reasons to love flowers. Kasia Boddy’s Blooming Flowers provides a richly illustrated exploration of flowers and how, over the centuries, they have given us so much sustenance, meaning and pleasure.
From the romantic beauty of flowers to the evocative power of language… A Little History of Poetry offers a vital, engaging and hugely enjoyable guide to poetry, from ancient times to the present.
This spring we also dive into history, including an account of the common seaman in the heroic age of sail, in Sons of the Waves; the forgotten stories of how ordinary Victorian families managed financially in Bread Winner; and the wartime adventures of an SOE agent in A Schoolmaster's War.
