Saltire Society Scottish Publisher of the Year 2016

In November 2016 Floris Books won the Saltire Society's Scottish Publisher of the Year award! This brilliant award is the pinnacle of what has already been an exciting year for the Floris team. In 2016 we celebrated our 40th anniversary, settled into our new home (an office with views for miles!); had one of our books shortlisted for the funniest prize in children's literature and jumped for joy when another of our books won the Blue Peter Book Awards.

What do we publish?

Floris publish books in two main areas: non-fiction for adults, and books for children. Within our non-fiction list, we focus on quality books which look at the world a little differently. Our books cover all aspects of holistic and alternative living, including Steiner-Waldorf education, biodynamics and organics, holistic health, philosophy of the natural world, mind body spirit, parenting and child health, philosophy of human life and religion & spirituality.

We're also the largest children's book publisher in Scotland. We publish board and picture books for 0-7 year olds, including international stories in translation and nostalgic classics from illustrators such as Elsa Beskow, as well as the Picture Kelpies range of Scottish picture books; story books and anthologies for 6-10 year olds; and the Kelpies, a much-loved range of Scottish children's fiction for 1-15 year olds. We also publish a wide range of craft and activity books suitable for children and adults of all ages.
