An Introduction to Capall Bann

Capall Bann is an independent publishing house, formed in September 1993 by Julia & Jon Day, with a difference, in fact with several differences, from the average publisher. For a start we run from our smallholding Auton Farm in Somerset. It is a working smallholding with sheep, chickens, ducks, 8 cats and a labrador. We moved here in 2003 and have planted over 300 native trees since then, our connection to the earth and this place in particular is very important to us. We both worked hard to set the company up and we are all dedicated to producing books of real value and to give great service to our readers. Julia is the first to see new manuscripts and her inspiration, understanding and patience with the rest of us is vital, while Jon has the energy of at least several people and runs around at the front edge of our contact with the rest of the world.

Our aim when setting up the company was to publish the sort of books we would like to read. As large publishers increasingly concentrate on the ‘coffee table’ and glossy gift-book market, the Mind Body Spirit books with real content seemed to be disappearing from the shelves. Many good things are written and put out in booklet form, but these rarely find their way into the shops and are therefore difficult to obtain. 

We publish a range of over 300 books of interest to Pagans, New Agers and others interested in alternative healing, earth mysteries, folklore, psychic and spiritual development. We have years of experience ourselves in these fields - we understand and care about the contents of our books. As the range has expanded it has become more eclectic, putting forward the views of many paths, new information, thoughts and inspiration.

Our authors express many differing views within these fields covering a wide variety of paths; they include well-known names such as Michael Howard, Nigel Pennick, Patricia Crowther, Robert Cochrane, Prudence Jones, Chris Thomas and Nigel Jackson together with a host of new talented and inspired writers and aritists. All titles are professionally produced, perfect bound paperbacks on good paper with full colour laminated covers.
