Hi there. We're The Beautiful Book Company, and we're thrilled to meet you. We create beautiful, bespoke, hand crafted literary-based gifts –perfect as a thoughtful gift for someone you love, or for keeping yourself!
Born from a life-long passion for books, combined with the frustration at a lack of options for great literary gifts, at The Beautiful Book Company we believe in the power of literature to inspire and fire imaginations of all ages, temporarily transporting people from their day to day lives.
Whilst many people choose e-books these days, we're sure you'll agree that there is nothing better than the look, feel and smell of a physical book, whether you're opening it for the first time, or pulling it off the bookshelf to devour for the twentieth time.
So come and check out our book subscriptions and book boxes to discover a world of Beautiful Books, or explore our prints and stationery for something a little bit different.

THINGS WE LIKE
Here at The Beautiful Book Co we love reading, and it's our ambition to share that love with you.
Here are some of our favourite books:
The Shadow of the Wind - Carlos Ruiz Zafon
This is a glorious tale set in the Barcelona of old, about love, literature and the Devil. We love the gothic atmosphere, lyrical prose and thrilling storyline. Stop everything and read immediately.
The Catcher in the Rye - J.D. Salinger
If you've ever wondered what it's like inside the
mind of a 1950s teenage boy, Catcher is the book for
you. Written from the perspective of a boy on the
brink of adulthood, it's an endearingly honest American classic.
Letters of Note - Shaun Usher
A gorgeous compendium of correspondance
from the significant and the insignificant, the
sublime and the ridiculous. Perfect Sunday
afternoon reading over tea and cake
Goodnight Mister Tom - Michelle Magorian
Our favourite children's book, this wartime story of a young evacuee and his "Mister Tom" is a heartwarming and heartwrenching tale. Have a hanky at the ready!
