We are a small entity, but endeavour to dispatch orders via Royal Mail twice a week. Please remember to leave adequate time for overseas orders to arrive before getting in touch to let us know that an order hasn’t yet arrived. We use recycled all-board book mailers to ensure you receive your books safely.

If you would like to stock any of our books, please contact hello(at)makinabooks(dot)com or see our Contact page.


This list of shops changes often, but I try to keep it up to date. If you are interested in stocking any of our titles at trade discount, please get in touch:
