Want to help support independents?

If you have a social media account where you talk about books then you can help us keep publishing interesting! We offer commission and gifts for any sales that you send our way. The world of independent publishing is built on collaboration and that includes the thousands of people who join the conversation about books they love every day.

Join the Dead Ink Bookshop community

The Dead Ink Bookshop is an offshoot of Dead Ink Books – a neighbourhood bookshop from an independent publisher. In October 2022 we opened the doors to 375 Smithdown Road in Liverpool, a real brick-and-mortar bookshop. Our aim with the space is to showcase creativity outside of the mainstream and the corporate. All the books we stock are from independent publishers, our stationery is from small producers and even our coffee is sourced from a local roaster. Our website here intends to do the exact same thing online. Everything we stock here is from an independent publisher (big or small) and when you shop with us you help keep independent creativity going. Everything you buy here is posted out from our little shop in Liverpool. As we're part of Dead Ink Books, we are supported with funding from Arts Council England and form part of the National Portfolio.
