About Us Triglyph Books

Founded in 2019 by celebrated photographer, Dylan Thomas, and award-winning writer and editor, Clive Aslet, Triglyph Books seeks to push the boundaries of quality in illustrated books. Dylan and Clive’s unique combination of visual and editorial experience enables them to achieve superlative quality across all aspects of production -- words, images, design, printing and binding. 

PERSONALITY Essential to this British brand, is the relationship of trust that Dylan, Clive and their team have with their clients. The partners have had the good fortune to work with many prominent people, publications and organisations around the world during the course of their careers. This has given them an intimate understanding of luxury and the absolute confidentiality required by people for whom privacy is paramount. 

TOTAL FLEXIBILITY The service offered by Triglyph Books focuses on quality, creativity and client experience. Young and agile as a company, we are proud to combine personal service, with an emphasis on the latest technology. Books are crafted to suit the client, whether in large print runs for distribution throughout the book trade or in small numbers for a purely private circulation. We have the digital expertise to translate a book onto the web, or to develop a web idea into a book. Equally, we love to work with specialist papermakers and craftsmen to create luxurious bindings and other bespoke features. 

CRAFTSMANSHIP Triglyph Books has its heart and headquarters in the British countryside, and where possible, looks to champion the small businesses and local artisans here. The result is the very best in contemporary book production, and a focus on sustainability. 

OUR WONDERFUL CLIENTS We help clients celebrate their history, their anniversaries, their successes.  We record people, families, homes, businesses, institutions -- each title is a testimony to our creative range and joy in publishing.

    Dylan Thomas is one of Britain’s foremost photographers of people, interiors and brands.  Having begun work as an assistant to the internationally famous Lord Snowdon, he now enjoys an outstanding reputation for detailed and technically complex work over a variety of visual media.

    His latest book "Old Homes, New Life. The resurgence of the British country house" is a collaboration with writer Clive Aslet, the role and meaning of the country house in the 21st century.

    As an expert interpreter of light and shadow, Dylan is acutely sensitive to the environment around him. This enables him to capture individuals and places with a spontaneity that makes both appear authentic and entirely natural.
