White Lion Publishing

Based in White Lion Street in North London, White Lion Publishing is a new imprint that combines the very best of our former lists Aurum Press, Frances Lincoln, Jacqui Small Publishing and Quintessence.

White Lion publishes across several core non-fiction categories including travel, food & drink, visual arts, heritage, sport, gift, gardening, smart thinking, London and popular science. Our mission is to help readers understand and enjoy the world around them through expert writing, visually striking content and innovative, contemporary formats. As you move from room to room around your home and then out into the world beyond, WLP has a beautiful book to suit your interests and aspirations.

With over 40 years’ backlist and considerable experience and expertise publishing bestselling illustrated books, notable successes include 1001 to See Before You Die series (over 1 million copies sold worldwide), The Daily Telegraph Unpublished Letters (now in its 10th year), the bestselling RHS Desk and Pocket Diaries. Our market leading gardening list has stellar authors such as Joy Larkcom, Beth Chatto, Christopher Lloyd, Victoria Summerley, Tim Richardson and Matthew Biggs and our cookery list has stand out authors Pierre Koffman, Peter Gordon, Natasha Corrett and Vicki Edgson as well as Mich Turner, Joudie Kalla and Jo Pratt.
