About Us

The old barn team

Old Barn Books is an independent publisher of illustrated books for children and gift books for adults. With an office in the barn in the woods we published our first book, Bluebell Bears, in April 2015. Working with creative friends old and new we have published board books, picture books and novelty books. We love beautifully illustrated books and look to build a list that is eclectic and personal and to produce high quality books that children will enjoy.

Do sign up to our newsletter to hear about forthcoming titles and author and illustrator events, or follow us on twitter, instagram or Facebook (links at the bottom of the pages).

Old Barn titles are proud to be distributed in the UK by Bounce Sales & Marketing and in Australia by Walker Books.
