Baton Wicks Publishing

About B?ton Wicks and Diadem Diadem Books Limited, established in 1978 by Ken Vickers and Ken Wilson, was sold to Hodder and Stoughton in 1989 and was run from within the Hodder group with Wilson as publisher. Following the Hodder/Headline merger, Diadem publishing ended in 1993. Wilson left the company and set up B?ton Wicks to publish new titles and steadily re-acquire the Diadem list. On reprinting, some titles retained their Diadem imprint (for production reasons) while others were transferred to B?ton Wicks (given new ISBNs etc). The long-term aim is to move everything into the B?ton Wicks imprint. Both Diadem and B?ton Wicks titles predominately concern hill-walking, mountaineering and rock-climbing. From time to time suitably related titles from other adventure sports are added (e.g. Caving, Cave-Diving and Ski-Mountaineering). There is also one Military title. The general strategy is to acquire titles from writers, past and present, who have been intimately involved with key events and trends within broader mountaineering. Some guidebooks have been published - those related to adventurous sectors - together with short story collections, biographies and historical narratives. The adventurous diversity of British mountaineering is showcased in a series of related titles (Hard Rock, The Big Walks, Cold Climbs, Classic Rock etc). Another theme is to re-popularise the great mountain writers of the past by collecting their books into a series of omnibus volumes. Overseas focus is on the greater ranges and also the key rock climbing areas, both current and historical. A glance at our list of authors shows that most of the leading names are represented. Small publishers have to rely on strong backlists. We therefore try to publish books for the long term and keep them in print. Large illustrated titles like Classic Rock (1978), The High Mountains of Britain and Ireland (1988) and The High Mountains of the Alps (1994) retain a steady popularity and are regar...
