The Great British Book Shop at The London Book Fair

We had a fantastic time at the London Book Fair this year.  It was busy, busy, busy all of the time.  We were very happy that so many new customers and prospective customers wanted to speak to us, and delighted of course to meet the many old friends who found the time to drop by.  We’d like to take the opportunity to thank all of you.

The chief event for us at the Book Fair was the proper launch of the Great British Book Shop.  It is an ambitious new initiative that aims to bring the publisher much closer to the reader in terms of the supply chain through printing titles on-demand.  Its watchwords are fast turnaround and unimpeachable quality.  It has some simple but clearly defined goals:

  • To create new and lucrative sales channels for publishers
  • To promote the sales of print books and e-books in the same place
  • To create a loyal book-buying, book-loving readership
  • To ensure that everyone gets a fair price.

The Great British Bookshop attracted a lot of interest at the Book Fair and was very well-received.  If you would like your titles to be included or need more information, please contact Lucy.
