Coffee Table Books

Books are one of the greatest inventions of humanity, in ways that are almost innumerable. A good book allows for the discovery of entirely new facets of this world; whether that’s an interest, a location, culture, history or skill … the list is endless.

 

Finding that perfect book gift for someone is more than just giving them something to while away the hours. It’s a gift of exploration, of learning and of fulfilment. When you gift someone a British book that they will love, you’re offering a journey, the length and breadth of Britain.

 

This is why we’re dedicated to not only celebrate the best coffee table books that celebrate British manufacturers and British artisans but also those that photograph British culture in all its guises. For those moments where only ink and paper will do the job. When only the heft of an expertly crafted book will soothe your soul. Whether that’s to enjoy leafing through London’s history, to ascertain the meaning of manners and etiquette or discover unique British culture. Settle down and pour yourself into a beautiful coffee table book and drift away into a world of picture and words.
