‘In a publishing world where everything seems to be about agglomeration, it's cheering to see a company making a sustained case for the power of the small and the singular. I have been surprised and delighted by so many of Salt's books over the years. It has compelled me to read outside the box. Watching its list grow and develop has been an unpredictable pleasure.’ Claire Armitstead, The Guardian
‘Salt Publishing arrived onto the UK’s vibrant independent publishing scene at the end of the 20th Century, and have embodied a pioneering spirit and boldness in keeping with the new century, while retaining a timeless adherence to editorial strength of taste and purpose. Over 20 years they’ve developed their publishing, with a sizeable backlist and prize-contending front list. It’ll be exciting to follow their story as they move into their third decade.’ Stephen Page, CEO, Faber & Faber
2019 marks our twentieth anniversary as an independent publisher – we couldn't have made it without you, our readers. In two decades, we have published more than 1,000 products with over 1,380 contributors, launching many writers’ careers. To celebrate, we are publishing more new novels, non-fiction, short stories, poetry and children’s fiction – twenty-seven new books in total. Among them are crime novels, ghost stories, memoirs, mysteries and gripping thrillers – we hope you find something to buy, read, share and treasure.
We hope you can take part in our celebrations and find your way to the many Salt events and readings throughout the year. And if you can, please post your reviews and book or author photos using the hashtag #SaltAt20 – we’d love to see and share what you enjoy.
Thank you for all your support and we look forward to bringing your more debuts and more reading pleasures throughout our third decade.
