Roost Books

Focusing on the areas of cooking, creativity, family, and nature, we publish lifestyle books that aim to inspire. We are an imprint of Shambhala Publications, an independent, family-owned publisher who has been making books for nearly five decades; we’re distributed by the good folks at Penguin Random House.

We believe that there is beauty and wisdom in the subjects that are often relegated to “domestic life.” Whether it be cooking, crafting, playing creatively with our children, or exploring the outdoors, we find that these activities give us the power to create positivity in our own lives and in the world at large. Each book is selected, edited, and designed with the utmost care and with the intention of sharing a truly enriching experience with our readers.

Why do we publish the books we do? We do it for you! We do it for our extraordinary authors. And if we’re honest, we do it for us—creating the books we want to read and use. We think of our authors and our readers as part of our family and hope that, through our books and what they inspire, we weave a community of caring and creative hearts and minds.
