Cadsonbury Publications was founded by Robin Mitchell in the 1990s as a publisher of historical New Zealand books that were out of print. Robin’s death saw Barry Hancox, owner of Smith’s Bookshop in Christchurch, take over until 2019 when he sold Cadsonbury Publications as part of the sale of Smith’s Bookshop. Barry was responsible for creating the Cadsonbury branding and also changing the cover design.
Alan Direen and Tony Murdoch, the new owners of Smith’s Bookshop, have determined to maintain Cadsonbury’s niche role and to this end have begun to advertise titles nationally and regionally. Three new titles have been released under their management.
Currently Cadsonbury carries 127 titles and these may be viewed at www.cadsonbury.co.nz
