Grout & Associates editorial design for books and magazines has focussed mainly on the publishing side covering a wide spectrum of subjects; anything from home-interest and life-style to history and science as single books, books in series or co-editions.

The projects range from the very popular, e.g.Woman's Own magazine, part-work magazines for Marshall Cavendish to academic and heavily illustrated technical books, such as the Complete Encyclopaedia of Earth Sciences for Cambridge University Press.
