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.
