Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from everyone at Rockfax.
We have finalised our plans for 2012 and we are aiming to publish six books during the year. Since this is two more than we have ever managed before in a calendar year then we could be being slightly optimistic, however we have two titles very close to publication as I write this – Dorset and Peak Limestone – plus the Beginners’ Guide for Climbers which already at the printers and due for delivery in January. So three books before Easter looks easy to manage. The next three though are rather longer tasks and I suspect that the schedule may slip a little.
The main book of the summer is Peak Bouldering: a new revised, updated, generally improved and enhanced version of the classic old Peak Bouldering guide that first appeared in 1998. Adrian Berry is putting this together and the work done so far looks stunning.
The pre-Christmas books for next year are France : Ariège – part four of our France series, and the fifth edition of our ever-poplar Costa Blanca book. We will need to wait until nearer the time before we decide exactly which one takes precedence a decision which may well shift the other book into early 2013.
