Mike Salter, trading as Folly Publications has about eighty titles in print, covering morris dancing, medieval castles, old parish churches, monastic sites, ancient monuments, open bothies and long distance walking trails.

The castles and churches books contain numerous black and white photographs and many plans reproduced to a set of common scales to allow comparisons of buildings of similar types (e.g. all churches, keeps, tower houses, gatehouses, etc. at 1:400, and courtyard castles mostly at 1:800, earthworks and large sites at 1:2000). The more recent digital titles about morris dancing, open bothies, nunneries, bridges, walled towns and Saxon churches have many colour photographs.
