Project archive: Bookshops
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.
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.
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.
