Natural History Museum Publishing produces books that reflect our collections, scientific work and exhibitions.

These books are mainly published under the Museum’s imprint, but some are in partnership with other publishers.

Written by expert authors and sold globally, our books appeal to a broad audience, whether young or old, amateur or professional. 


All books and journals published by or in association with the Museum are held under copyright. There may be fees involved when material held under copyright is reproduced or translated.

Rights and permissions

If you would like to publish our books in markets outside of the UK, please email us.
