Welcome to Taproot Press
An Edinburgh-based publisher committed to presenting challenging, contemporary voices from both Scotland and beyond.
Taproot Press was started by two University of Edinburgh students, Patrick and Dani, with the help of experienced editor Jennie Renton and poets Robert Alan Jamieson and Miranda Pearson.
‘At once a curse, a lament, a radical cry, each narrative thread weaves its magic to make a spellbinding whole. A beguiling and perfectly crafted novella coloured by the bracken and the bluebells of a Scottish autumn and spring.’ – Mary Paulson-Ellis
In this latest book by Saltire-shortlisted Linda Cracknell, the history of a Perthshire woollen mill is told through the lives of those locked in and out of its walls: a wandering stone mason, disaffected architect, and rural suffragette.
