About Us - Flame Tree Publishing
"The purpose... is washing the dust of daily life off our souls” Pablo Picasso
We’ve been ‘washing the dust of daily life’ for over thirty years, making illustrated books since 1992, art calendars since 1998, notebooks since 2006, illustrated ebooks since 2009 and short-story fiction since 2015, and the launch of our genre fiction list in 2018. We aim, always, to make objects and books which are both beautiful and practical, that enrich the lives of the people who work with us and partner with us, who read and enjoy what we make.
The last few years have brought increased partnerships to bring more inclusivity across our entire list, from our short story submissions to the artwork in our calendars and notebooks, and 2022 saw a significant focus on sustainability with the removal of shrinkwrap on our calendars to create an entire programme of plastic-free products.
Throughout our list, powerful and eloquent artists such as Angela Harding and Alphonse Mucha are complemented by extensive licenses in our award-winning calendar line, with Bodleian library, The British Library, The Ashmolean, Tate, V&A, RSC, RA and many other valued partners whose work we are privileged to publish.
With a wide range of authors, editors and writers, from Ramsey Campbell, V. Castro, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Steve Hackett, John Howe, Sir George Martin, Brian May, Paul du Noyer, Paco Peña and Stanley Sadie we strive to make projects that are affordable, useful and beautiful.
We strive to work globally and locally. We print in the Far East, Europe and the US, our authors hail from India, Hong Kong, Greece, Romania, Italy, the UK and the US, we have a New York Editorial office and a North American PR specialist based in Toronto. Our head office is in Fulham in London, our US distribution is conducted by Simon and Schuster, and our UK, Europe and Asia distribution is handled, from May 1st 2023 by Hachette Distribution.
