How we work:

Briefing: We hold a preliminary meeting to discuss the project and your specific book and design requirements. We will then provide a full brief of the project and a complete costing.

Selection: Our team of in-house experts will choose, acquire and collate your book collection. Every book will have justified its place in your library on the quality, relevance or beauty of its contents. We can also advise on any shelf design requirements.

Installation: Your library will be delivered by our team of experts. We highlight the importance of providing not only an engaging library but also a beautifully presented collection. Installation and display can be requested.

Follow Up: Our team will remain in contact to ensure the ongoing success of your library. Should you wish we can advise on seasonal updates or new publications that will compliment your collection.

If you would like to discuss an existing library or a new project with our library-building team, please do not hesitate to contact us to book the first consultation.
