The Red Admiral Press is in the business of bringing you the best and most innovative children’s books of the 21st century.

Located in a disused water tower on the outskirts of Amsterdam, the Red Admiral Press is commited to publishing quality books for both children and adults.


Cayem T Rawin: Editor

Born in Pune, Maharashtra, and educated at Cambridge, Cayem (or ‘K’ to his friends) works on a short-term contract basis with pension funds and insurance companies around the world. With a passion for literature in English, French and Marathi, Cayem started The Red Admiral with Tracy Weiman in 2015.

The Red Admiral began as a vehicle to present Tracy Weiman’s forgotten children’s books to the world, but soon developed into something more. Tracy is an American currently living in Amsterdam, where she met both Cayem and Áine in 2013.

Áine McWryat: Illustrator

Áine began life as a schoolteacher with a talent for drawing, and married a Dutch man in 1964. After his death she moved back to her native Eigg, but still comes to Amsterdam occasionally to manage her business affairs. It was during one of these trips that she met Cayem and Tracy.
