The G&G imprint was established in 1988. In 2007 G&G developed a second publishing list called Waverley Books, to focus on Scottish titles – Children's, Food and drink, Nature and natural world, and Non-fiction of Scottish interest.
Waverley has created a genuine tartan cloth notebook and journal range, working with Kinloch Anderson based in Edinburgh, and continues with a general publishing programme that includes children’s, and non-fiction, cookery, fiction and leisure interest.
Today, operating within Gresham, G&G remains as an established brand for publishing and exports popular, affordable and useful books such as dictionaries, bi-lingual books, English grammar and usage texts, for language learning as well as books on Self-Help, Diet & Health and Mind, Body & Spirit.
