Ferry Publications was established in 1987 by Miles Cowsill and John Hendy and is now widely recognised as Europe’s leading publisher in this specialist field, producing a range of publications covering all aspects of the ever-changing ferry scene in the UK, Scandinavia and Mediterranean spheres of operations. In addition to our books, we publish a quarterly ferry publication, formerly known as European Ferry Scene, but as from October 2009 is known as Ferry & Cruise Review, which will include an overview of the expanding cruise industry. Our popular website allows the reader to purchase any of our books and pay for them online via a secure site. Where a new book is being published, interest can be expressed in forwarding an email in an order to be advised as and when it will be ready for distribution.
New titles and amended updates are constantly being produced or are in the planning stage. In order to keep up-to-date, both with what is going on in the world of European ferries and with our new titles, readers are strongly recommended to subscribe to our quarterly magazine Ferry & Cruise Review. For further information on new books being published by our company visit here. Ferry Publications has gained a reputation of producing high-quality books at affordable prices since 1987.
We pride ourselves with the high-quality photographic reproduction which we achieve and we believe that our books fill a considerable gap in the market, not only for shipping enthusiasts but anyone who is involved or has a passing interest in shipping and the sea. For 2013 we will be launching a series of new books, including the history of the Hurtigruten Norwegian coastal service celebrating part of its 120th anniversary. The book will be produced in both English and German. Early 2013 also sees the launch of the 40th anniversary book on Brittany Ferries, produced in both English and French. Other books for 2013 include the complete history of Irish Ferries (including B&I), TT Line and SeaFrance.
From its inception Ferry Publications has been a joint enterprise between Miles Cowsill and John Hendy. In April 2007 Ferry Publications commenced operating under the wing of Lily Publications Ltd. This has no way affected the nature and style of the successful Ferry Publications brand, which continues to operate to its usual high standard.
