Festive season gift ideas

‘Tis the season!

If you’re looking for a suitable arty gift for that someone special, then look no further. From an artist’s studio lunch-time recipes to an iconic philosopher’s photography, and from a homely Art Nouveau masterpiece to the best of today’s British art, and beyond… here are our recommendations from the past year.

This selection of beautiful books embraces a variety of creative forms such as poetry, artists’ books, architecture, graphic design, painting, cooking, art theory, and more.

Wishing you a safe and restful festive holiday.

Welcome to our website.

Please note, our Festive Season last postal dates are below. We would always advise ordering in advance of these deadlines to avoid disappointment.

UK Orders: Friday 16th December, 2022

International Orders: Friday 9th December, 2022.

We strongly recommend that you select the trackable, courier option for all your Festive deliveries rather than the standard postal options, as all Royal Mail services may be disrupted by strike action. Royal Mail is also non-trackable.

Best Wishes,

Cornerhouse Publications Team
