Welcome to Scouse Press

Scouse Press was established in 1965 by Fritz Spiegl and is Liverpool’s oldest publisher of books and historic maps of Merseyside. These include the famous Liverpool Packets series and “Lern Yerself Scouse” phrase book for visitors and locals alike.  We also supply some of Fritz’s own nationally published books on music, language, football, and medicine! All prices include postage and packing.

The press is now run by Ingrid Spiegl and Claude DePussy. There is no shop but it is possible to buy online. Below, you can find links to our many products, sign up for our email list and read our blog.
