Always up to 75% off publishers' prices

Our Story

Postscript Books was established in 1987 by a family of avid readers with the aim of sharing intriguing books with as many fellow enthusiasts as possible, at affordable prices. Since then, we have specialized in new, unusual and almost-forgotten titles from major publishers and smaller presses, and always pass on discounts of up to 75% off publishers’ prices. Most of our titles have a product description by one of our team of professional writers, helping to ensure that you get an honest overview of our books.

Ever conscious of the world around us, we make regular book donations to charities and are doing our bit to take care of the environment. Our catalogue is produced in the UK on paper from sustainably managed forests, and all our books are sent from Devon in eco-friendly packaging – including our boxes, green bubble wrap and tape.

Also based in Devon is our friendly, first class customer services team. In addition to taking and processing your order, they are more than happy to provide further information about our products, over the phone, by email or post, or via the LiveChat service on our website.

We hope you enjoy exploring the wide range of titles in our catalogue and on our website. As our books are in high demand and often in limited supply, we recommend that you order promptly. Happy reading.
