10 Vintage Non-Fiction Recommendations

Whether your interests lie in art, politics, AI technology or the power of re-shaping our lives, we have an exciting list of non-fiction reading recommendations for you.

The truth, it's often said, is stranger than fiction – and it can often be just as gripping. Non-fiction opens up the world, bringing real stories about our real lives – our humanity, customs, food, behaviour, and much much more – to vivid life.

This autumn, we have a fresh new batch of captivating reads on offer: for history and language enthusiasts, discover The Dictionary People by Sarah Ogilvie, in which the author brings to light the unsung heroes who created the Oxford English Dictionary; or Ways of Life by Jim Ede and the Kettle's Yard Artists, a beautiful biography that reveals the life of a visionary who helped shape 20th Century Britain. Read on to see our selection of ten brilliant new titles spanning politics, art and well-being; there's something here for every reader.
