Nicholas Jones


Nicholas Jones studied biological science at university. He expected to go into scientific publishing, but his first job at Michael Joseph found him copy-editing Dick Francis. He then went to Thames Television to manage tie-in books, records and merchandise. Here, he was able to use his interests in both typography and sound recording and learn many of the skills that have come into play at Strathmore. Additionally, he ran the publishing and bookselling operations at the RIBA for eight years before establishing Strathmore in 1995.
