Take a look inside The Castle the King Built

In January we’re excited to be publishing The Castle the King Built – a brilliant new guide to what goes on inside medieval castles, based on the classic rhyme ‘This is the House that Jack Built.’ Featuring striking retro artwork by new illustrator Tom Froese, and carefully researched rhyme from author Rebecca Colby, this promises to be a fun and stylish guide to medieval life.

And today you can take a first look inside the book!

How many people does it take to build a castle? And what exactly does each person do? Discover masons to merchants and bakers to blacksmiths in this unique take on the classic rhyme ‘This is the House that Jack Built’. Beautifully produced on wood-free paper with stunning silver foil on the cover and a visual glossary of characters at the end.

Take a look inside:
