Merchiston Publishing is the imprint of the Scottish Centre for the Book based at Edinburgh Napier University. The publications – print, ebook and online – are managed by staff and powered by students on MSc Publishing.
Our Books to Bairns series provides books (and in some cases Teachers’ Resources) to children in schools and hospitals across Scotland, in particular, Edinburgh.
These books are provided free of charge. Teachers can request a class set of one book, or a selection of our books, or even single copies for their school library.
Please get in touch to find out more.
Edinburgh Napier University and Merchiston Publishing proudly announce the publication of Imagined Corners by Willa Muir.
This neglected Scottish classic has been reproduced by Edinburgh Napier students as part of an innovative publishing project.
Over 500 copies are being distributed free of charge to schools, prisons and libraries to encourage reading across Scotland, and to highlight the brilliance of Scottish literature.
Books to Bairns
Our work focuses on providing books to disadvantaged readers. Books to Bairns is one of our initiatives. We edit, design, create, publish and distribute (donate) books to schools, hospitals, prisons and other institutional libraries. Find out more about our book advocacy:
- Books Behind Bars
- Readers Beyond the Margins
The production of many of these titles is supported by charitable trusts and other bodies. Such copies are therefore distributed freely, although a handling charge may apply. To find out more, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
