Vertebrate Publishing

Sheffield based award winning publisher


At Vertebrate Publishing we publish books to inspire adventure.

It’s our rule that the only books we publish are those that we’d want to read or use ourselves. We endeavour to bring you beautiful books that stand the test of time and that you’ll be proud to have on your bookshelf for years to come.

The Peak District was the inspiration behind our first books. Our offices are situated on its doorstep, minutes away from world-class climbing, biking and hill walking. We’re driven by our own passion for the outdoors, for exploration, and for the natural world; it’s this passion that we want to share with our readers.

We aim to inspire everyone to get out there. We want to connect readers – young and old – with the outdoors and the positive impact it can have on well-being. We think it’s particularly important that young people get outside and explore the natural world, something we support through our publishing programme.

As well as publishing award-winning new books, we’re working to make available many out-of-print classics in both print and digital formats. These are stories that we believe are unique and significant; we want to make sure that they continue to be shared and enjoyed for generations to come.
