Who We Are

Big Picture Press is a new list of highly illustrated books launched in September 2013, publishing as an imprint of the Templar Company Limited (UK and Australia) and Candlewick Press (US and Canada). We believe that books should be visually intelligent, surprising, and accessible to readers of all ages, abilities, and nationalities.

Big Picture Press books are objects to be pored over and then returned to, again and again… created by and made for the incurably curious.
We also recognize that visual excellence enhances the way we read and the stories we are told – whatever corner of the globe you’re reading from.
And thus our motto, taken from an old Navajo poem: MANY TONGUES ONE EYE.
