Quote from their website:
The Crowood Press was founded by John Dennis in 1982 with an initial list based on country interests. Since then we have grown to include a diverse range of titles for hobbyists, enthusiasts and professionals in each of our publishing areas. We are proud to boast a backlist that includes over 1,400 titles, including many bestsellers such as The Artist Blacksmith, Linocut for Artists and Designers and Craft Cider Making. We continue to publish some eighty new books each year.
