In 1664, the horticulturist and diarist John Evelyn wrote Sylva, the first comprehensive study of British trees. It was the world’s earliest forestry book, and the first book ever published by the Royal Society. In 2014, author Gabriel Hemery and artist Sarah Simblet, taking their inspiration from the original work, have masterfully created a modern version – The New Sylva. Over 400 pages in length and featuring more than 100 UK tree species, the book contains over 200 pen and ink drawings of British trees. The New Sylva is a detailed and sumptuous celebration of the UK’s trees and forests.
Our fourth book for renowned chef Heston Blumenthal is a lavishly illustrated tome charting the evolution of British cooking and Heston’s reinvention of historical dishes from medieval days to late-Victorian times. The book contains signature dishes from both The Fat Duck and his double Michelin-starred Dinner, which is ranked 7th in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants. Working closely with artist Dave McKean and photographer Romas Foord, our richly decorated and crafted design and intricate typographic detailing echoes the colourful past of the subject matter while balancing the contemporary and innovative presentation of the modern recipes.
The latest title from master baker and TV celebrity Paul Hollywood is our third for the popular Great British Bake Off judge. Our typographic design moved away from the more traditional approaches we had undertaken in previous titles to provide a more contemporary lifestyle presentation to the author.

'Envy will sell The Ivington Diaries, of course. The book
itself is deeply covetable, with
its heavy, creamy paper and
its splendid efflorescence of colour images.'
