Wild Swan Books Ltd

Beautiful books created with care

In December 2014 Paul Karau and June Judge sold the book business of Wild Swan Publications to Simon Castens of the Titfield Thunderbolt bookshop. Magazine publishing would remain with Paul under the name "Cygnet Magazines" whilst the book side of the business would henceforth operate under the name of "Wild Swan Books".

This marked a retirement of sorts for Paul after 35 years of producing books that had set new standards for railway publishing, many Wild Swan titles are still amongst those most sought after by enthusiasts and collectors alike. Paul would remain involved on the creative and production side of the new business for the foreseeable future.
