3-hale_logo_-rgb-jpegFounded in 1936, and working from their building in the heart of London’s historic Clerkenwell, Robert Hale is a thriving independent publisher, publishing under four imprints:

  • Robert Hale, catering for a truly wide range of interests both in fiction and non-fiction with particular strengths in general hardback fiction, MBS, biography and practical reference
  • J.A. Allen, recognised internationally as the leading publisher of equestrian books
  • NAG Press, the leading publisher for the most extensive range of books on horology, gemmology, jewellery and precious metals in the British market
  • Recently-launched imprint Buried River Press, which draws on the best of over seventy-five years’ independent publishing experience to select and produce paperbacks to entice, intrigue and delight those readers with an appetite for superb stories

Bookswarm has created a new e-commerce website for Robert Hale, utilising WordPress and the market-leading WooCommerce plugin to deliver a smooth buying experience for customers. The catalogue is automatically populated by a nightly feed from Robert Hale’s BooksoniX system, making content management a breeze, and the responsive site has separate templates for the different imprints, which are automatically applied to each book. Successful orders are automatically passed to the warehouse for fulfillment.
