Brown Owl Press is an independent publisher of photo books and zines based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the United Kingdom. Founded in 2013 by Al Palmer, they focus on narrative photographic stories in printed form. Brown Owl Press was initially inspired by such publishing concerns as Antler Press, A-Jump Books and Little Brown Mushroom. Palmer drew the logo and a two year plan out in a coffee shop in Honolulu while traveling, and started Brown Owl Press when he returned to the UK later that year. 23 releases later and they’re still going strong.
