The Firebird, retold by Tom Hirons, illustrated by Rima Staines
In a certain kingdom, where the mulberries grow as big as apples and the apricots are sweeter than honey, there was once a great, broad-leafed forest.

Welcome to Hedgespoken Press

We make beautiful things from the margins

Hedgespoken Press aims to publish works of beauty, power and old magic in the form of the printed word and image.

We are the printed-works arm of Hedgespoken, the travelling storytelling theatre, and our work is similarly influenced by a love of folktale and a sense of wonder. We believe in the power of art and the written word, just as we believe in the power of old stories told by starlight and fire. We believe that all these things are important. Your support helps us create more of them all. Thank you for visiting today.

As a fledgling small press, we currently produce works by Tom Hirons and Rima Staines, including Sometimes a Wild God and Nettle-Eater by Tom and prints of artwork by Rima.

If you would like to stock our works, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to find out wholesale prices and terms.

We are a very small enterprise and we rely on word of mouth to spread the news about our books and prints and everything we do.
