The AA was founded in 1905 as a body initially intended to help motorists avoid police speed traps. As motoring became more popular, so did we, and our activities have continued to expand into a great variety of areas. In 1910 we published the very first AA routes with handwritten details, and by 1929 we were issuing an impressive 239,000 routes a year. Since the 1990's we have dramatically expanded our publishing activities producing top notch atlases, maps and travel guides for the UK and the rest of the world. We've also produced many excellent walking, cycle, leisure and best selling lifestyle guides, driving books, kits and car accessories. No wonder AA Publishing is the UK's biggest travel publisher and one of the top ten worldwide.
