The Thorn Press

Home      About us
 
 
The Thorn Press is an independent publisher. It was founded by Jeremy Warburg in 1979, primarily to bring out specialist knitting titles written by Tessa Lorant. Among these the HERITAGE OF KNITTING books were phenomenally successful and are now collectors' items.
Following the success of the knitting books The Thorn Press published three fiction titles.
Jeremy Warburg died in 1986. The Thorn Press was closed down, but has now been revived.
We are again publishing both fiction and non-fiction. It is hoped that the HERITAGE OF KNITTING books will be republished in facsimile form in the near future.
Meanwhile, we are publishing a number of titles, the most recent listed below.
 
We are proud to announce that Ann Victoria Roberts (THE MASTER'S TALE, a Titanic Ghost Story) has won 2nd Prize in the International Rubery Book Award, 2012.
We are also proud to announce that two other Thorn Press books made the long list for the 2012 International Rubery Book Award: HOBGOBLIN GOLD, Tessa Lorant Warburg, and SNACK YOURSELF SLIM, Richard Warburg & Tessa Lorant
