With enormous thanks to William, Clive and especially the brilliant Andrew at Crystal Thought we're delighted to say that our new website is up and running. We're really pleased with it and we hope you will be. Thanks too to Kathryn Widdowson whose wonderful photographs of our books which appear at on the homepage slider, make (we think!) the site look so stylish.
Read on for lots of news and offers including two competitions, a 30% off code, and a small free gift for orders during our official opening week...
- 100s of books with new lower prices
- Over 2000 books with re-written descriptions, new keywords, or new photos
- Nearly 1000 books newly added online
The big change is with keywords. Keywords now appear at the side of a book and are clickable meaning you can do cross-curricular searches very easily for concepts such as identity, democracy, stream of consciousness, mysticism, sexuality, Romanticism, taboo, etc.
The checkout should be much easier, and you can now checkout as a guest without having to mess about with passwords.
We hope you'll like the new site so whilst you're looking about we're offering everyone a 30% code (scroll for details) for the next 7 days, and exclusively to newsletter and Juxtabook blog readers we're offering a mini pack of our CL Hawley Collectable Books Notecard Set with every order.
