Tarquin as a publisher was created over thirty years ago by Gerald Jenkins, then a mathematics teacher. Starting with a desire to make polyhedra in the classroom he discovered that books were the perfect medium of distribution for books containing models combining the fun of making them with the process of discovery. Tarquin’s list has stuck to the principle of combining fun with education ever since.
We want our books for kids to be unique and fun; our products for teachers and other adults to provide ideas to make a subject lively and interesting. We welcome feedback - either through our social media links or direct to the email address below.
Tarquin is part of a much older company - Richard Griffin (1820) Limited - that has published in mathematics and science for more than 190 years. Its illustrious author base includes Michael Faraday and Humphrey Davy, and more recently the great statisticians. Look out for our authors feature in our newsletters.
