Books About Art, February 08, 2024 — Guy Bigland, an accomplished artist, bookseller, and the visionary behind Books About Art, is thrilled to unveil a distinctive sanctuary for art, design, media, and architecture aficionados. Books About Art proudly presents a thoughtfully curated collection of books at significantly discounted prices, sourced from the international remainder market. Positioned as the leading specialist bookseller, it offers an expansive and inclusive assortment of artistic literature, many of which were previously unavailable in the UK.

Guy Bigland’s journey commenced in the late 1980s with ‘Pennies From Heaven,’ an Art and Design bookseller committed to providing elusive publications and catalogs. Originally rooted in a charming shop in Bath, the business later transformed into a mobile operation serving educational institutions. By the late ’90s, seven walk-in book vans were supplying schools, colleges, and universities across the UK and Ireland. Books About Art further engaged directly with students through pop-up sales in the foyers and cafes of art schools.

Believing fervently that art should be accessible to everyone, Guy Bigland’s Books About Art is an embodiment of that philosophy, offering a diverse range of books designed to inspire and educate. The collection spans myriad artistic realms, from classical to contemporary, appealing to both seasoned art professionals and those embarking on their artistic journey.

With Guy Bigland’s unique blend of artistic prowess and bookselling acumen, the collection transcends being a mere showcase of books. It is a meticulously curated selection that mirrors a deep passion for creativity and expression.

As an artist himself, Guy Bigland understands the pivotal role of cultivating creativity. Books About Art acts as a bridge between artistic inspiration and enthusiasts, fostering a community of learners and creators.
