bookish england

We're bookish. We love books and all things book-related. We love paper and pens. We love reading and writing. We love writing about reading and reading about writing. We love editing. We like typewriters, ampersands &&&, limited editions, mugs of tea, chewing pencils, cool photography, wandering around random museums, and practising our signatures over and over and over again.

We believe in the power of books. The power they have to help us change and grow, and the power they still hold over us years and years after they have been read. We keep almost all of our old books; we're hoarders and we just can't bear to get rid of them. We love the memories. Sometimes we cut up knackered old books and make something else out of them; a handbag or confetti or a lovely paper-chain of little bookish men. We love handmade, vintage, upcycled, recycled, repurposed, reused and reloved bookish things.

We're bringing beauty back to books and offer a curated ensemble of gorgeous designs and finds. With a fabulous collection of literary and typographic artwork and prints, novel jewellery, bags, cards, home accessories and wedding favours you're sure to find the perfect gift.

bookish has been featured in The Guardian, Conde Nast Brides, Wedding magazine, Domestic Sluttery, and S magazine. Our unique literary paper roses have been used for photo shoots by French Connection and have been featured in Italian Elle.
