Not at the moment but we’re currently working on it!

Do you accept submissions for stocking books?

We're always excited to see new work by artists! If you would like to share your publications with us, please email us at with the following details —

• Publisher (if any), otherwise ‘Self-Published’
• Recommended Retail Price
• Genre (Artist Book, Photo Book, Zine, Magazine/Periodical, etc.)

As we specialise in art books, artists’ books, photo books, and zines, we do not accept submissions of fiction/poetry books as they do not fit within our selection here at Thing Books.
