Square Peg

Square Peg is a non-fiction publisher with a taste for something a bit different

A brief history of Square Peg

Square Peg launched in 2008. Each year we handpick just 20 projects, spanning narrative non-fiction, cookery, humour, design-led, illustrated books and entertaining reference. Each Square Peg book is unique, be it a gutsy memoir, a lovingly created cookbook, a killer idea, or simply laugh-out-loud humour. Our books are beautifully designed, stylishly produced and published with flair. From Hyperbole and a Half to 26 Grains, our boutique and eclectic list is driven by a sense of style, personality and passion.
