At Atlantic Press, we create works of graphic literature which respect the illustrator’s personal voice: their ideas, their pictures and their words. We call this ‘authorial illustration?

Our rare and collectable books present imaginative ideas or tell intriguing stories, and are often illustrated for an adult audience, or designed to appeal to an audience of all ages. We are an independent press, publishing limited edition first books by authorial illustrators. Associated with the Masters course in authorial illustration at University College Falmouth incorporating Dartington College of Arts, Atlantic Press seeks to promote new authorial illustration talent, as well as recognising existing practitioners in the illustration field. We work closely with talented illustrators, allowing them authorial freedom; our role being to support their personal imaginative vision. Atlantic Press is run by illustrators and educators and we aim to publish innovative picture books which display the highest literary and visual standards.

We have recently published two new titles which we will be presenting at 22 panels. Pick me Up by Anna Kiernan & Harriet Lee-Merrion and The Devil’s Noose by Heidi Ball.
