FaberShop Opens For Business On

LONDON, July 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The Book People and Faber and Faber are delighted to launch an exciting new online destination for Faber content and books, direct to the Book People customers - and beyond. FaberShop ( is a high-quality magazine-style bookshop featuring a premium online store which sits within the new portfolio of the Book People shops: Red House, LEGO and DK Travel Shop. FaberShop will feature exclusive author interviews, articles and competitions, all based around editorially chosen monthly themes, and will offer a range of promotions on selected titles at retail prices. 

The launch theme of this unique new venture will be curated by FaberShop's editor Hannah Marshall, and will celebrate women writers and the influence they've had on the literary landscape and beyond. It will include a 'Meet the Author' with Louise Doughty - whose book  Whatever You Love was hugely popular among Book People customers, and whose new title  Apple Tree Yard is available to buy now - as well as a series of short pieces by Faber authors in which they choose their 'top five' women who changed writing and the world.   FaberShop goes live on Tuesday 2 July.  Faber CEO Stephen Page said: 'Faber is a company that has been and remains at the centre of the literary world globally, and we see our purpose being to bring excellent writing to as wide an audience as we can. The Book People share our desire to inspire readers and have millions of visitors to their site, so partnering to create an aspirational, literary offer through the FaberShop is a really exciting way to do just that. The Book People CEO Seni Glaister said 'We are delighted to be able to present our customers with a choice of shopping environments, where browsing to discover new authors can be a real pleasure. Our customers have always had a thirst for good quality fiction, and this groundbreaking collaboration with Faber will allow us to introduce them to a rich vein of writers and some of the most talented and passionate thinkers in publishing. In turn, we are able to give Faber access to some of the benefits of the digital age that selling direct to the consumer should bring. It's a win-win situation, a new direction in publishing and bookselling, and one that we're proud to be at the forefront of. Readers' choices within British bookselling have been eroded - we hope this varied and truly enjoyable experience will counter that."   Edi to r's Notes The Book People Britain's number one direct bookseller and a true home-grown success story, the Book People specialises in bringing high quality books at amazingly low prices to customers who may not necessarily visit a high street bookshop. The Book People sells books through a successful website, a mail-order catalogue and direct to people at their places of work. A key aim of the Book People is to encourage everyone to read for pleasure and to this end it also offers expert knowledge and advice through Red House, a specialist brand designed to guide children on their reading journey. With 25 years' experience in the bookselling business, the company has an enviable, award-winning reputation and customers know they can rely on the Book People for both quality and value.  Faber and Faber
