One of the comments we get most is how much people like our Rossiter Books logo. Find out here how Karl Lewis from Cascade Design went about developing it for us.
We are proud to have been chosen as one of only a handful of shops authorised to stock a range of Folio Society books. Beautiful, collectable and a true celebration of books, these are very special editions of some of the greatest works ever written. Next time you are in our shops be sure to have a look.
Bestselling author and bookshop devotee, James Patterson has donated a total of £500,000 to independent bookshops in the UK and Ireland, and we are delighted to have received one of these grants in the second round of donations. Look out for new hanging signs and A-frames featuring our ‘reading boy’ logo at both our shops.
James Patterson says: “I have been completely overwhelmed by just how many people have applied for the grants second time round, and yet again have been impressed and enthused by the calibre of the applications. It’s been very exciting to see the ideas from the first round in action. I have again worked to identify independent bookshops for whom this money may make a difference and I’m excited to follow their progress. I can’t wait to see what the UK and Ireland’s incredible and pioneering bookshops propose for next year.”
Some authors go the extra mile to support booksellers, and artist and author Jackie Morris is perhaps one of the most dedicated.
