Some rather exciting news this morning as we have officially revealed the latest addition to our group of publishers – Duncan Baird Publishers and Watkins Publishing. Duncan Baird was founded in 1992 and is the leading independent publisher of illustrated books in the fields of food, health and well-being, mind, body and spirit, culture, religion and Faith. Watkins was established in 1893, becoming internationally famous as an esoteric retailer, and then subsequently a publisher, specialising in the spiritual traditions of the world, ancient wisdom, divination and philosophy.

That adds another couple of entities to the growing Osprey Group, which now includes us (obviously!) heritage publisher Shire, Old House – the publisher of the bestselling Bradshaw's Handbook guide, SF and Fantasy publisher Angry Robot, YA imprint Strange Chemistry and Crime imprint Exhibit A.

And what does this mean to you – all of the Osprey customers out there? Well – truth be told, not all that much, we are some excited we just wanted to let you all know. Osprey Publishing are committed to continuing to do what we do, as well as we can do it. So, expect more military history for the foreseeable future!

From everyone here at Osprey, a warm welcome to the teams at Duncan Baird and Watkins – we look forward to meeting you all very soon!
