Norwich, the home of NCW, is a city of independent bookshops and publishers. The Jarrold family arrived in the East of England in the 17th century, bringing with them the art of printing and bookbinding. They published Anna Sewell’s global bestseller Black Beauty in 1877. Today, Norwich remains the regional centre for publishing and is home to five per cent of the UK’s independent publishing sector, including Propolis, Galley Beggar Press, Gatehouse Press, Eggbox Publishing and Strangers Press.

NCW has been involved in the publication of many books over the years, some of which are available to purchase online using the links to the left.
