LAURANTON Books was set up in 2014 by historian Dr Judith Buckrich to enable her to produce fine quality publications of her own work. It will be expanding to include other authors in 2017. Her second publication under this aegis The Village of Ripponlea won a Victorian History Award. Other books are The Making of Us: Rusden Drama, Media and Dance 1966-2002 and The Political is Personal: a Twentieth Century Memoir. The designer for each book was Rosetta Lake Mills.
In 2018 LAURANTON published two new works The Heart’s Ground: A Life of Anne Elder by Julia Hamer and The Bright and the Cold: Selected Poems of Anne Elder.
