In the early ’70s , for a brief period, the Almark Publishing Company was apparently everywhere. There was a magazine, ‘Modelworld’, a series of high quality books on uniforms, and even a couple of sets of hard plastic WII figures.
Then the company vanished. Modelworld folded suddenly.
Does anyone know what happened to Almark, and whether anyone has the rights to the books?

What a strange coincidence:I was just thinking the same thing!
In my case it was brought about after sorting my collection of Almark Napoleonic books ready for listing on eBay.
Hope someone here can help.19/06/2017 at 19:46 #65147

What an interesting question. I hope someone can provide a better answer than I have been able to find.
Almark Publishing Co. Ltd
Company number 00992307
Incorporated 21 Oct 1970
Dissolved 12 Sep 1995
49 Little Bookham Street
Surrey KT23 2AA
This is all much less useful than you might think, as companies house do not have electronic records going back that far, and getting more detail would require access to their archives. I am quite surprised the date of dissolution is so late; as far as I can make out Almark published nothing after 1979, and as I was working in France at the time I evidently failed to notice their disappearance.
All the best,

I guess you could try and contact any authors who are still alive to see if they know anything about the directors ?
