Welcome to this website
I have endeavoured to make this site reflect my love of books and their history, from illuminated manuscripts to the latest e-book.

Looking for a pretty, original present at a reasonable price?

It is possible to commission illuminated texts or buy  many of the drawings on this site. and we can arrange wrapping and postage for you.

Please select contents for more information & we look forward to hearing from you..
