Welcome to BookStop Gallery

We would love to see you in our shop in down town New Plymouth  - details, and map, on the contact page.  

Alternatively a selection of books and other items are available from our on line store  - via the Shop tab.  Be sure to check out the Specials.

Looking for that hard to find or out of print book?  - use the contact page to email us the details of the book and we will see if we can locate a copy for you.

Photography on Canvas:  New Zealand award-winning photographer Adam Buckle's photography on canvas is superb and easily packaged to post.  Each piece is finished with a UV resistant lacquer which prevents fading, (as long as it is not displayed in direct sunlight for long periods), and can be gently wiped with a damp cloth to keep it clean.

Gifts & Souvenirs:  Please check out the range of  gifts and souvenirs  - NZ Made and /or Kiwiana / designed by NZ Artists  - all are NEW products

Books: Those noted as Format B are midsize.  Format C are larger Trade paperback size.
