Princeton University Press acquires Wild Nature's list

Princeton University Press has acquired the list of UK-based natural history publisher Wild Nature Press.

Wild Nature owners Marc and Julie Dando will continue to be involved in the marine-life specialist, which promises to release new nature titles into the UK market.

Titles in Wild Nature’s list include The Essential Guide to Rockpooling by Julie Hatcher and Steve Trewhella and The Marine World: A Natural History of Ocean Life by Frances Dipper. The acquisition will build on PUP’s existing natural history list which includes the press’s WILDGuides and Princeton Field Guide series.

PUP field guides and natural history executive editor and publisher Robert Kirk said: “I am very pleased and excited to announce our acquisition of this excellent natural history list. Wild Nature Press publishes books of the highest quality, and we will be working together to increase the overall output and reach of the list over the coming years.”

The Dandos said: “We are delighted with our move to PUP, and with their support and expertise we look forward to producing many more exciting new titles.”
