Our History Cool Springs Press is the leading publisher of do-it-yourself books for the home and garden category. Written by experts and photographed by professionals, Cool Springs books are known for clear, complete, up-to-date information and color photography of the highest quality in the industry. Among our many offerings you will find the bestselling garden book for the past 30 years and the bestselling home improvement book of the past decade. Our roster also includes the hottest new gardening book in recent years and the nation’s only complete state and regional garden book series. The Cool Springs Press imprint represents the combined lists and resources of two venerable publishing enterprises. Cool Springs was founded in Nashville more than 30 years ago. Its original mission was to provide state-focused garden guides for Tennessee and the surrounding area. Its scope grew rapidly, however, and Cool Springs was acquired by Quarto Publishing Group USA. Shortly thereafter, the home improvement publishing arm of the Quarto Group was added to the Cool Springs family to create a dynamic new entity with the shared mission of creating and publishing the best home and garden books on the market today. With an enviable list of illustrated step-by-step books that represent the standard of home DIY publishing, as well as our many regional and national gardening titles, we can proudly offer a beautiful, expertly-written book to fit just about any home or garden project you can imagine.
