MMP Books
MMP was founded in 1996 by Roger Wallsgrove, to publish Mushroom Model Magazine. This quarterly modelling magazine was developed from Mushroom Monthly, a club newsletter which ran from 1985 to 1995, achieving a world-wide reputation for quality articles, fearless and honest reviews, and a great sense of humour. From 1997 the magazine was produced in collaboration with Robert Peczkowski and Artur Juszczak (Stratus), which meant a big leap in print quality and design. MMP expanded into book publication in 1999, and since then they have built up a list of books on aircraft and aviation history, military vehicles, and military history. Their books are now read around the world and have been received to critical acclaim. In 2006 the decision was made to stop producing the magazine to concentrate on book production; the books being a logical follow-on, and with the same philosophy. MMP’s emphasis is on accessible, well-researched and well-written books, showcasing top-quality photos and artwork, produced to a high standard.
