Lilburne Press is an independent publisher and distributor of art and historical books. The company has been run by author and photographer Nicholas Reed since 1989.
It takes its name from the 17th century campaigner for democracy, John Lilburne.

Originally based in London, Lilburne Press produced several books about artists and their connections with London.  Since 2003 based in historic Folkestone in Kent, the company intends to produce further books about artists in this country, and more books with a Kentish theme.

Lilburne Press is reprinting a series of art mystery novels by John Malcolm.
The fifteen detective novels all involve British art and locations mainly in the South of England.
In the past these novels have only been available in hardback, but Lilburne Press has now produced four in paperback. - Art Novels

In July 2005 Lilburne Press started to   publish a monthly magazine, "Folkestone Creative", which is still going strong. This magazine covers what is going on in the cultural life in Folkestone and the surrounding towns.
