Introducing Books About Art: Your Destination For Affordable Art, Design, And Architecture Books

10.19.2023 · Posted in Shopping


Books About Art, October 18, 2023 — Books About Art, an online haven for art enthusiasts and bookworms alike, proudly announces its collection of meticulously curated art, design, media, and architecture books, all available at significantly reduced prices. Founded by Guy Bigland, an artist and seasoned bookseller, Books About Art stands out as the premier destination for an extensive array of art and design publications, sourced from the international remainder market, many of which were previously unavailable in the UK.

The roots of the business trace back to the late 1980s when it began as “Pennies From Heaven,” specializing in rare and elusive art and design publications. The journey commenced from a charming shop in Bath, from which the mission was to make hard-to-find books accessible to enthusiasts.

By the late 90s, seven distinctive book vans became a familiar sight across the UK and Ireland, delivering knowledge to schools, colleges, and universities. There was also a venture into direct sales, setting up shop in the vibrant foyers and cafes of art schools. This mobile venture allowed for personal connections with customers while spreading the joy of art and design books.

In 2016, the mantle of Books About Art was passed to Guy Bigland. Armed with a single van and a passion for the written word, he embarked on a four-year journey, traversing the country to serve loyal customers. In August 2020, Books About Art emerged in its digital avatar, allowing art enthusiasts from all corners of the UK to access the carefully curated collection.

What sets the brand apart is a commitment to affordability. The collection is a treasure trove of artistry and creativity, providing a unique perspective on the worlds of art, design, and architecture. Whether an art student, a seasoned artist, or simply an appreciator of beauty, Books About Art has something to offer.
