Signed Books

We have been very lucky to meet and hold a couple of events with Jackie Morris throughout the year. Jackie is a champion of independent bookshops and has spent time signing our stock in order for us to have something special to offer our customers. Not only does Jackie sign her books, each copy holds an small pen sketch so all are utterly original.
