Just a couple more days to stop by our London pop-up shop. If you’re in the area, you’re invited to check out some great books, see and feel our paper samples, get hands-on bookmaking demos, mingle with the Blurberati, and hear inspiring speakers. Check out the Flickr stream to see what’s in store.
Bring your laptop or book export for great advice on the book you’ve already got going (can you say best gift ever?). Or RSVP for one of the terrific events this weekend. And don’t forget to ask for our discount vouchers.
So pop on in before our pop-up goes away.
