At the Oxford Alpine Club we recognise that different climbing destinations require different styles of guidebook. A guidebook not only needs to be factually accurate, but must promote and enhance adventure; it must be clear and easy to use on the belay, whilst being interesting enough to read in bed or in the bar; it must capture the spirit of a destination and provide motivation to go out and explore; it should make your life easy when planning a trip for the first time. An OAC guidebook must do all of those things with a personal feel to it. We do not mass-produce books, or hide their character behind a corporate image, so when you buy an OAC guide you get a very individual product - a labour of love, created by climbers, for climbers.
Our future guidebook projects rely on local experts to provide the inside knowledge, and ensure that our guidebook will be the authorititive source for future visitors. To that end, we are always on the lookout for new authors... So if you have been collating route information to a climbing destination that you think other people might be interested in then we'd love to talk to you. Our publishing packges range from full editing, publishing and sales, through to simple ISBN allocation. For more information, visit out publishing pages.
