Once upon a time, there was a man called Campbell Goldsmid. He was a nice man who sold a $6m business called Autumn Publishing to a nice $5b USD Swedish media group called Bonnier. This was in 1999, and everything was nice then.

During the next eight years nice turned to busy, and Piccolia, Five Mile, Templar and Weldon Owen were bought. Then along came a man called Richard Johnson, who was always busy and occasionally nice so fitted in well.

With a totally new team and assisted by Group COO Sharon Parker, he formed Hot Key Books, Blink, Little Bee Books, bought Piccadily Press, John Blake Publishing, Totally Entwined Group, Igloo Books Group and with Mark Smith’s help started up Bonnier Zaffre.

The story began at $6m USD and now we are at $170m USD."
