Mensch Publishing

Mensch Publishing launched in February 2019.

Mensch has no mission statement and no stated editorial strategy. Its aim is simply to help authors reach readers with minimal intervention and maximum impact and to reward them proportionately. 

The corporate logo was drawn by Spitting Image founder, Roger Law.

Richard Charkin says: ‘I don’t have a grand strategy for Mensch publishing – success will be driven entirely by the books we publish not the statements I make. But I trust Mensch will live up to its name’.


Mensch’s first audiobook Time to go has been selected for British members of Parliament to enjoy during their summer recess away from the ghastliness of Brexit.

Next year is the 80th anniversary of the turning point of WW2, the Battle of Britain and we are publishing John Willis’s Churchill’s Few to mark the occasion.
