A new web presences for two linked brands, under the banner of the Belgravia Books Collective:
- Gallic Books (publisher)
- Belgravia Books (bookshop)
This e-commerce website replaces two older websites, and allows the the client’s team to manage everything within one WordPress website.
An award-winning independent and much-loved bookshop, Dulwich Books has been serving its local community for over 30 years. We worked with them to create an attractive new ‘one page’ site which will be flexible enough to change as the business evolves, using WordPress and the Divi Builder.
Bi-lingual site in English and Scottish Gaelic for Tha Comhairle nan Leabhraichean / The Gaelic Books Council. Their main missions are:
- To support the development of Gaelic writing.
- To stimulate interest in Gaelic books and other related materials.
- To support Gaelic authors by awarding grants and commissions.
- To support the Gaelic publishing industry.
- To increase the range, quality and impact of Gaelic literature
The new site uses WooCommerce to allow the sale of books and other products, and is integrated with the in-shop POS system Merlio, allowing streamlined inventory and stock management. It’s fully bilingual in English and Scottish Gaelic through the use of the WordPress Multiingual Plugin (WPML).
Bookswarm created a bespoke Point-of-Sale and stock management system – Libreria Bookscanner – powered using WordPress and its popular WooCommerce plugin. Stock is added using a barcode scanner, with book details and covers downloaded in real time from Nielsen’s BookData web services.
Libreria, a new book shop, printing press, and interdisciplinary community space, merges state of the art design and technology with a fresh enthusiasm for physical bookselling. From Rohan Silva and Sam Aldenton, the founders of Second Home, the iconic East London space for entrepreneurs and creative businesses, Libreria blends the best of the digital and analogue worlds.
Maldon Books is an award-winning independent bookshop located in the heart of the historical town of Maldon, Essex. We replaced their previous Wix-based site with a new, WordPress- and WooCommerce-based website to better showcase their selection of titles, allow easy staff curation and reflect the welcoming, comfortable environment of the shop.
Fulham-based independent bookshop Nomad Books first opened its doors in 1990 and has evolved with the changing needs of its customers ever since. We designed and built a new website to allow the team to recommend books, show off the shop and highlight events and other offerings.
