Whether you want to spend just five pounds or 300 or more, we have a wide range of books that would make great gifts.

We recommend:

Under £30 - buy a copy of: 'World Famed Hooks and Eyes' by Sylvia Watering. A beautiful photographic homage to the domestic world of the 1950s and 60s. A gem!

For a bit more: Artists' Choice Editions' 'Illustrating Alice'.An international selection of illustrated editions of Lewis Caroll’s 'Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland' and 'Through the Looking-Glass'.

And for less than £1,000 'Ode to a chestnut on the ground' from Verdegris Editions. Taken from ‘Selected Odes’ by Pablo Neruda, this rich volume is a perfect example of the work of Verdigris Editions, a collaboration between the American artist/printmaker Judith Rothchild and the English printer Mark Lintott.

If you really want to go to town the book that stands out in the fine bindings section is 'Venice' with its unique binding by Sangorski & Sutcliffe.It combines work by arguably the UK's finest printer, John Randle, with a binding from probably the UK's finest binder. It is a rare and very beautiful book.
