WE PUBLISH STORIES ABOUT BRISTOL PEOPLE, PLACES AND EVENTS

 

Bristol Books, a not-for-profit Community Interest Company was formed by four people with a passion for Bristol to meet the huge demand for local stories about the city and the South West through the years.

 

There is a huge appetite for stories about Bristol and the surrounding area. Bristol has been the home of some fascinating characters and the venue for some amazing events. Our aim is to capture these untold stories and help enrich the culture of the city.

 

Bristol Books is a skilled and experienced team with a passion for Bristol and we pride ourselves on high publishing standards – investing in quality writing, research and design to ensure all our books are a success.

 

The Bristol Books team is author and social historian Clive Burlton; publisher Richard Jones; book designer Joe Burt and Martin Powell, publicist and marketing professional.

 

There are so many fascinating facets to Bristol that unless they are chronicled, recorded and captured there is a danger that the stories will be lost.

 

Bristol Books 'B'The business uses the “B” from the “Bristol scroll” as its logo. First introduced to the city 100 years ago and familiar to older Bristolians as it was used on the side of Bristol buses.
