IWM publish a large range of books linked to our exhibitions and archives. These books are published in-house under the IWM imprint, as well as in partnership with other publishers.

New IWM imprint titles for 2015 include Art from Contemporary Conflict, introducing IWM’s lesser known but remarkable contemporary art collection, Churchill’s Cookbook, a selection of mouthwatering recipes from Churchill’s personal cook during the Second World War, and Unofficial War Artist by Peter Kennard, Britain’s foremost political artist, accompanying a major retrospective of his work at IWM London.

We are busy working on projects to help commemorate upcoming anniversaries in 2015 including 70 years since VE Day and 75 years since Dunkirk, the Blitz and the Battle of Britain, and 100 years since the Battle of the Somme in 2016. If you are a publisher looking to work with us please email
