Book Palace Books

Welcome to the new Book Palace Books blog!

Some of you will already know The Book Palace, which has been dealing in comics, books and original artwork for the past thirty years. Book Palace Books was launched in 2005 to publish The Modesty Blaise Companion, a comprehensive compendium of information on Peter O'Donnell's famous strip. In 2007, publisher Geoff West and designer Stuart Williams were joined by editor Steve Holland to republish some of the finest but forgotten strips from British comics. Beginning with Frank Bellamy's Robin Hood and Frank Bellamy's King Arthur, Book Palace Books set a high standard for quality, which they have continued with the recent publication of Frank Bellamy's Complete Swift Stories and Frank Bellamy's Story of World War 1, the latter available in both softcover and signed, limited edition hardcover.

Book Palace Books also took over the publication of the third volume of Robert E. Howard's Complete Conan of Cimmeria (available in a leatherbound, signed, limited edition, a signed, limited edition hardcover in slipcase and a signed, limited edition hardcover in slipcase with additional preliminary drawings).

We are currently working on our next group of titles, which will include the long-lost Wells Fargo and Pony Express strips by Don Lawrence, a collection of classic adaptations of H. Rider Haggard and the long-awaited Thriller Libraries Index, a companion to the War Libraries Index published in 2008.

Here at the Book Palace Books blog we'll keep you up to date with all the latest news and also cover some of the artists and artwork that is on offer through Book Palace and the Illustration Art Gallery.
