Shepheard-Walwyn is an independent publisher in South West London. Our first book was published in 1972. Our aim is to find books that have a lasting value, feeding heart and mind. Below are the main categories in which we have published.
The unique factor in these books is that they are reproduced from original calligraphy and illustration. Calligraphy may be thought of as beauty of speech made visible by the art of the hand, bringing the words to life, rather like setting them to music. These beautifully illustrated books make lovely gifts and keepsakes; as a publisher we aim to find hidden gems and bring them to the wider audience.
Today’s market economy is driven by profit seeking and emphasises shareholder value as the primary objective of business. This undermines traditional values of caring and sharing. For these to regain their rightful place in society, we need to look again at the basic laws of economics. Democracy requires an educated electorate with a social conscience, able to ensure that the common good prevails over sectional interests.
The address of our ethical economics website is www.ethicaleconomics.org.uk
We have endorsed a range of endearing history and biography texts. Without a knowledge of history, we are ignorant of what has made us the way we are. Biography enriches the study of history with the stories of the individuals who were the life and soul of the past.
In the modern world it may sound pretentious to describe oneself as a seeker after wisdom, but for centuries it was considered an admirable objective. At the heart of the Renaissance in Florence such a group, led by Marsilio Ficino, revived the idea of Plato’s Academy in Athens. The golden thread of perennial philosophy may be recognised in all cultures and climes.
As one of the leading indie publishers in London, we are full of praise for one of the greatest writers of all time. The 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth in 2014 and the 400th of his death in 2016 enhanced his extraordinary worldwide popularity which owes much to his gift of presenting timeless wisdom in captivating allegorical dramas.
This was accorded pre-eminence in the arts of ancient Greece. Poetry’s aesthetic supremacy and inhering mystery has made it the foremost form of expression when human beings need to say something important in a special way. Poetry has been defined as the best words in the best order. We are always looking for inspirational and moving poetry books, as poetry is one of our specialist areas.
A selection of other titles may be found in our online bookshop, including Scottish interest, Burns, Glasgow and the Highlands, and royalty. Today constitutional monarchy is mainly a conservative force, helping to maintain stability. This very fundamental stability enables the country to absorb more radical changes in its political and social structure than would otherwise be possible without the risk of disorder, something plaguing many countries today.
