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.
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.
It is always good to get feedback from customers, especially of course when it is positive! We were visited recently by Emma Drabble, who posts photos and words on Blipfoto on a daily basis. This great photo and these lovely words are the result of her visit to our shop at the end of January 2014.
