Our Name and Location

Acanthophyllum Books takes its name from a group of south-west Asian plants "haunting high hot rocks from the Caucasus to Persia" (in the words of Reginald Farrer). It can also be interpreted as a play on the words 'acantho-' (spine) and 'phyll-' (leaf).

Holywell is named for a spring of water with miraculous properties, having helped to reattach the decapitated head of a wronged maiden (or so it is believed).
