Nut 'n' Bolts Guide

Handy info for any potential customers
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 reclaimed 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 :) 

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 can be arranged from No Books HQ, which is in Mosstodloch, Moray, IV32 7JF.   #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 is most appropriate for the size and weight of your order, and location of your address.  Spend £40+ for FREE P&P to anywhere in the UK (IV, remote, Island addresses, all the same price).  Orders below £40 are £4 P&P.
I ship WORLDWIDE.  Due to the massive variation in costs & criteria for shipping (especially post-Brexit), please drop me a line with what you'd like to order, and I'll check mailing costs and get back to you.  I've disabled automatic checkout for non-UK addresses, purely because I don't want to massively over OR undercharge anyone.  

I guarantee to dispatch your order no later than the date I tell you....unfortunately I can't control how quickly it reaches you. Please allow yourself plenty of time for time sensitive orders ♥
