Creating a literary lifeline for those in need

Ulverscroft was founded in 1964 with one aim: to bring back the joy of reading to those who had thought it was no longer possible.

Respecting our heritage, embracing the future

Since developing the world’s first large print book in 1964, our mission has been to keep people reading.

Through our industry-leading large print, our world-class audiobooks and innovative digital platform we’ve made it easier than ever for you to get lost in a book for longer.
