About Medina Publishing

Medina Publishing is a leading independent publisher based on the Isle of Wight, with operations across the globe. Since 2009, we have produced a diverse range of academia and trade books on an array of social, political and cultural topics.

As part of Medina’s emerging localisation and growth, the company relocated from its previous base in London to Cowes on the Isle of Wight in 2020. Since then, the company has produced works relating to the Isle of Wight, such as Isle and Empires by Stephan Roman CMG, and Out On An Island by Frank Figueiredo-Stow and Caroline Diamond.

Medina Publishing also has an imprint, Arabian Publishing, which is dedicated to producing engaging titles on the Arabian Peninsula. Most recently this includes The Afghanistan File by HRH Prince Turki AlFaisal Al Saud, and Charles Huber: France’s Greatest Arabian Explorer by William Facey.

Outside of trade, we have established a reputation for publishing cultural commissions, requiring world-class research, editorial, design and production. To date we have worked with governmental authorities in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.

In 2019, we opened an independent bookshop in Cowes, stocking our bestselling titles alongside an eclectic selection of hand-picked books for all ages and tastes, as well as a variety of stationary, puzzles and gifts. Since opening, Medina Bookshop has provided an opportunity to connect with the local community, and in 2022 won the Muddy Stilettos Award for ‘Best Bookshop’ in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
