Search Press is the leading art and craft publisher in the UK, specialising in fine art, textiles, general crafts and children's crafts. The company was founded in 1970, when Charlotte de la Bedoyere published her first book – Basket Weaving in an attic room in Kensington. Translated from a German book, this was to be the first of many titles. The format was good. The books were small, reasonably priced and packed with information, offering crafters and needlecrafters new ideas and inspirational designs. Lotti, as she is known to everyone here at Search Press, went on include hot trends like pin and thread and candlemaking. The market loved them and she so she continued, introducing full colour and a successful series of practical art books – the Leisure Arts.
In 1997 following Lotti’s decision to retire, her son, Martin de la Bedoyere, took over as Managing Director, with his wife Caroline, as Sales and Marketing Director. Both were directors from Heinemann publishing, and they have continued with the strong traditions that Lotti had built up over the previous 27 years, publishing a wide range of good value, high quality art and craft books.
