Tiger of the Stripe is a small, independent book publisher based in the Borough of Richmond upon Thames in southwest London. Richmond is an attractive and historically-interesting town. It was known as Sheen (Scēon in Old English) until Henry VII built a new palace here in about 1500 and renamed the town after Richmond in Yorkshire. In turn, it gave its name to Richmond, Virginia. We are fortunate to have both Richmond Park and the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew, on our doorstep, and Hampton Court is also close.
Following the publication of the iBookstore edition, Enemies of Books is now available in Kindle format here.
We are thrilled to announce one of our titles has been published on the iBookstore®. Conversations on the Plurality of worlds is available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch for $2.99 in the UK and approximately the same price in other countries across the world. You can find it by going to the iBookstore and typing in 9781904799580. If you are in the UK, you can click hereand to order from the US store you can click here: .
Our second book for the iBookstore, Enemies of Books, is now available. It is in ePub3 format but not fixed layout because I thought that wasn't suitable for iPhones and iPod Touches. It looks great and has embedded fonts (well, only one), drop caps and pop-up footnotes. The last-named is almost essential for books with a lot of footnotes. Get it from the US iBookstore here:or the UK store here:
This book shows that you don't need a large kitchen, expensive ingredients and fancy equipment to produce good food. Faith Hancock worked as a nanny in France before travelling to Thailand, where she learned to cook Thai style.
On her return she lived in an old VW camper van, which taught her to cook in small spaces!
After a year spent in Australia she decided to make writing her career, and to combine her two greatest loves – good food and good writing. She is currently studying for a degree in English Literature with the Open University, and was placed first in a short story competition in 2012. She has also written an ebook which is available on www.moneysavingplanetsaving.co.uk.
She has lived in a caravan for 5 years now, and is learning daily about new recipes and the best way to cook and store food in a smaller than average kitchen.
We would welcome proposals for new books on living and dead languages, history, food, literature, science, culture and biographies. You can contact us using the link on the far left of this page.
