Bookswarm specialises in creating wonderful websites for book publishers, agents, bookshops and others in the world of books.
Bookswarm's unwavering sector focus enables us to add considerable value to every project, because we understand the book trade, the book production process and the considerable challenges facing publishers.
We understand publishing. We read the Bookseller every week. You don't have to explain ONIX feeds, AI sheets, ARCs, TCM figures or ISBNs to us. This means we can spend more time talking about what you actually want to achieve, whether you're a publisher or an author.
We're incredibly good value. We keep our costs very low and put together project teams of people we trust to deliver each piece of work.
We're nice people and we like to focus on the books you're working on - because we really love books. We find that makes all the difference.

Really, website design and implementation doesn’t get any better or easier than with Bookswarm – I cannot recommend them more highly!”
