The Company was founded in 2009 by Dani Hall. A former bookseller and bookshop manager. Dani was just completing an MA in Children’s literature when she launched the company with around 200 products in Reading (where else?). The website now has well over a thousand literary products and fans across the world.
The company is forever adding new stock. A few of the new items that caught my eye are below. I just wish I needed to take a packed lunch with me to work, as the lunch box is fabulous.
This brilliantly bookish lunch box includes slider divider, and is cleverly designed to look like a book.
It has a black elastic band to keep it shut.
It comes in a choice of three colours, blue, green and red.
