Little Books / Max Press
Little Books Max Press



Little Books is a vibrant, independent young publishing company. It is incredible to think back to when we first launched in 2003 with Little Books by Big Names, natty, concise books to fit in your pocket, authored by a glittering array of contemporary, well-known writers.

Since then, Little Books have continued to flourish. Our philosophy has been always to bring books to everyone juggling busy lives but who, passionate about reading, want to be entertained as well as informed - without needing to devote huge chunks of time to wading through over-long tomes or have the same book sitting on their bedside table for months on end.

In 2006 we launched Max Press, offering serious non-fiction, biography, travel and history. Since size does sometimes matter, Max Press has specialized in publishing not only concise editions, but also more substantial and academic volumes for those wanting something to get their teeth into.

2012 has been an exciting year with the launch of Max-es, our brand new range of e-books. Max-es are a simple, economic way to make the books we publish accessible to everyone, responding to the rapidly changing world of books and our readers preferences. Just click the link on this page to find out more.

Whether you have just enough time to squeeze in a Little Book or settle down and indulge yourself in a Max, we very much hope that you will enjoy reading our books as much as we and our authors have loved creating them for you.
