ABOUT SOUVENIR PRESS
We publish books for a healthier, happier, more interesting life – intelligent books with practical applications. We focus on identifying real problems and finding real solutions, providing well-researched and expert advice, spreading kindness and understanding, looking out at the world as well as in to ourselves, being inclusive and open-minded. We take our readers seriously but we know they have a sense of humour too. We cover useful science, psychology, food, health and fitness, major life moments, skills, craft and creativity, home, nature and sustainability; gift, memoir and even some fiction. We range widely, while sticking to a robust attitude to evidence based thinking, practicality and fun. Souvenir Press was founded in 1951 by Ernest Hecht, who owned and ran the company until his death in 2018. You can read more about him here, and we recommend it, he was remarkable! After Ernest died, Souvenir became an imprint of Profile Books, another fiercely independent company. Thanks for visiting our website – we hope you find something interesting to you, and do join us on social media (see icons below).
