'Hogarth House', 34 Paradise Road, Richmond, London, UK

The Hogarth Press was founded in 1917 by Leonard and Virginia Woolf. It was named after their house in Richmond, in which they began hand-printing books.

During the inter-war years, the Hogarth Press grew from a hobby of the Woolfs to a business when they began using commercial printers. In 1938 Woolf relinquished her interest in the business and it was then run as a partnership by Leonard Woolf and John Lehmann until 1946, when it became an associate company of Chatto & Windus.

As well as publishing the works of the members of the Bloomsbury group, the Hogarth Press was at the forefront of publishing works on Psychoanalysis and translations of foreign, especially Russian, works.
