••• CORONAVIRUS UPDATE •••
Business [almost] as usual
-----------------------------------
I'm getting lots of messages and emails, asking if I'm open for orders still, and the answer is YES, I very much am!
-----------------------------------

I work alone in my home studio, and post your parcels in the same shop as I am doing my weekly shop, just a mile away from No Books HQ.
I'm only posting on a Friday at present, and that will be the case for the next few weeks at least.
This allows me to follow both the letter and the spirit of social distancing and adds no unnecessary/extra travel.
-----------------------------------

There's free UK P&P on everything on nobookswereharmed.co.uk until NoBooksOnTour.com can get back on the road to events, and I can
post direct to the recipient, with a card & note from you, if the book is a gift. No extra charge for this either.

Stay home, stay safe and remember - if you can say it with flowers, they'll remember it with a book

Nut 'n' Bolts Guide
Handy info for any potential customers
 
PRICE GUIDE
Most pieces shown are individual examples of current or past pieces, usually already sold to their new homes :)


All of my pieces are folded in to pre-owned & vintage books, most of which were destined for landfill. Due to the natural variation in age, bindings, paper colour & density, grain of paper, type of text, and storage methods used for books, every end result is slightly different, making each one of my items completely unique.  

Turnaround times on orders fluctuate greatly throughout the year.  If you're in a hurry, please check out the In a Hurry? selection of No Books Pretties, which are almost always in hand and available for immediate dispatch.

Bespoke p
rivate and commercial commission pieces vary further as will be advised at point of ordering, as will Trade and bulk order clients.  All bespoke designs, names, words & dates are payable in full at point of order; commissioned pieces will only be added to my order book once settled in full. I am always delighted to work with you to create any image or words you have in mind :) Sometimes the design stage can take many, many hours, therefore there is an additional £5 design fee for creating the silhouette or image you have in mind in one of my books.  I am happy to give you a rough idea of total price upon enquiry, and this will become a firm quote at point of payment :) 


ORDERING 
Standard, in stock books can be purchased from any of the stockists show below.  Bespoke, commissioned books (including all names & dates) must be paid in full prior to work commencing. I'm always happy to try and meet your deadline for that special birthday or gift occasion that you totally forgot about - but I am only human, and my order book is always pretty full for weeks ahead. Every single client is important to me, whether you're spending £15 or £250. I don't offer an express 'bump me up the queue' service at this time. Help me to help you by giving me as much notice as possible, so I can create just the right gift for you :)


COLLECTION / DELIVERY
Collection can be arranged from No Books HQ IV32 7JF, and if you're in the area shown here, please enter code "FREE ZONE" at checkout, to avoid the delivery charge.   #NoBooksOnTour travels & exhibits all over Scotland at various shows, shopping centres and events - you're very welcome to arrange collection anytime I'm in a handy venue for you :-)
For less local orders, I securely wrap your book in sturdy, secure packaging, and will send to you using whichever postal service seems most appropriate for the size and weight of your order, and location of your address.  I currently charge a flat rate of £4 P&P to anywhere in the UK (IV, remote, Island addresses, all the same price).  Postage is free on orders of £125+ (applies to trade and private clients). 
FREE POSTAGE ON ALL ORDERS DURING THE CORONAVIRUS 'LOCKDOWN'
I guarantee to dispatch your order no later than the date I tell you....unfortunately I can't control how quickly it reaches you. Again, please, the more notice, the better. You can't rush beauty :D
