Tippermuir Books Ltd is a book publisher based in Perth. Established in 2009, Tippermuir seeks to add to the cultural life of Scotland by publishing interesting and worthy books in English and Scots. Our strength is our smallness and love of the written word. Our published titles to date have been purposefully broad in theme – we publish books that appeal to us and/or we feel are important culturally and socially. These include our brilliantly successful The Tale of the Wee Mowdie by Werner Holzwarth, illustrated by Wolf Erlbruch and translated by Matthew Mackie; Hunters: Wee Stories from the Crescent by Anthony Camilleri (with a foreword by Stuart Cosgrove), and Trust by Ajay Close.
We welcome submissions which will receive swift, honest, and supportive responses. Our name comes from the Battle of Tippermuir (1 September 1644), which saw an army of Irish mercenaries and Highland troops led by the 1st Marquis of Montrose and Alasdair Mac Colla rout a numerically-superior government army. Tippermuir lies just to the west of Perth.
Publications: 5/6 per year currently
Types of books published: Biography and memoirs, History, Local History, Military History, Non-fiction, Poetry, Scots Language (children’s and adult – poetry and prose), Scottish interest, and more.
