Wellcome Collection books explore health and human experience. From birth and beginnings to illness and loss, our titles grapple with life’s big questions through compelling writing and beautiful design. In partnership with leading independent publisher Profile Books, we champion essential voices and fresh perspectives across history, memoir, psychology, medicine, and science.
Wellcome Collection is a free museum that aims to challenge how we all think and feel about health by connecting science, medicine, life and art. It is part of Wellcome, a global charitable foundation that supports science to solve urgent health challenges, working in more than 70 countries, with a focus on mental health, global heating and infectious diseases.
