Merchiston Publishing

Edinburgh Napier University's Press, run by our postgraduate Publishing programme

Peter and Wendy

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.

Books to Bairns
