Obtaining titles

You may occasionally find Earthright Publications’ titles in bookshops, especially smaller, more specialist bookshops such as Housmans in London or Libra Aries in Cambridge, and some wholefood shops may stock Cordon Rouge. But it is not easy to interest most bookshops in relatively obscure (as far as they are concerned) titles from tiny publishers who do not use a distributor so few of them will keep any Earthright Publications’ titles in stock. You may also find Earthright Publications’ titles listed on Amazon but they do not hold any stock and it will take several weeks for you to get the books via them. The best way to obtain copies of Earthright Publications’ titles is to order direct - it is quicker and there is no charge for postage within the UK.

Background

Its proprietor, Monica Frisch, started Earthright Publications in 1980, in order to publish the first edition of Food: Need, Greed & Myopia, using experience gained through her involvement with Tyneside Free Press Workshop Ltd. Having enjoyed the process she decided to continue publishing although, unlike Bloodaxe Books, which also started on Tyneside at about the same time, Earthright Publications stayed very small, never publishing more than two titles in any one year and making only a small income for its proprietor.

If Earthright has a specialism at all it is probably local books: nine of the fourteen titles it has published have a strong link to north-east England, where Earthright Publications started, being about local issues (two books about the Druridge Bay Campaign), local guide books (four titles), linked to a local cafe (two titles) or by local authors. Earthright Publications does not publish fiction, and has no plans to produce any more books of poetry (as sales of the three published have been slow — all are still available).
