The Taunton Press evolved out of one man’s love for woodworking and his frustration with the lack of quality information on the craft. To remedy that, he created Fine Woodworking magazine.
Since that day in 1975, the company has developed into a 21st century media company providing high-value special-interest information to enthusiasts through a series of successful magazines, books, and digital products.
We published our first book in 1977 and since then, we've expanded beyond our core interest areas to bring our rich, in-depth approach to an even wider range of topics. In addition to our published books, we are distribution partners for key international publishers.
Today we publish five magazines – all standouts in their respective fields: Fine Woodworking, Fine Homebuilding, Fine Gardening, Fine Cooking and Threads. We are constantly innovating and evolving to meet the needs of our ever-growing audience, both in the U.S. and abroad.
