Alison Hodge Publishers was founded by Alison Hodge in 1979. We publish a wide range of illustrated books, specializing in art and photography, gardening, garden history, horticulture, natural history, food and surfing – drawing inspiration from our base in the far west of Cornwall.

We pride ourselves in the high standards of the books we produce. Our authors, artists and photographers are all specialists and leaders in their field. Our books are highly regarded for their authoritative and informed writing, and for excellence in design, illustration and production. Over the years, they have received international recognition and won many awards.

Our popular Pocket Cornwall series is a rapidly expanding resource devoted to Cornwall and its culture. These books are accessible, affordable and attractive. Explore Cornwall with Pocket Cornwall… they’re great little books, and great value for money.

Brought up in a home full of books, Alison Hodge has always worked ‘in books’ – for publishing companies in London and Nigeria; as a publishing consultant for ODA/DfID in Jamaica, and as an independent bookseller in Cornwall. She has an MA from the University of Birmingham.

We celebrated our 35th anniversary in 2014.
