How to order while we’re shut

Posted by

Update Friday 3 April

We can do (limited) home delivery orders again! To order: drop us an email to with the book you'd like, your address and a phone number we can reach you on. Please note: due to restrictions at our supplier, we can only send out single item orders, so one book at a time please!

If you have any further questions, feel free to drop us an email. To stop us from working all hours of the day and night, and generally preserve our sanity in this strange time, we will only be responding to emails Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. but we will respond as quickly as possible during those hours!

Ways to support us while we’re closed:

Look forward to a brighter time when this is all over by purchasing London Review Bookshop Gift Vouchers to spend in the shop once we reopen. To order, get in touch via email with a contact number we can reach you on, and we’ll get back to you.

The LRB Store – which sells our famous tote bags, mugs, assorted other LRB merchandise, as well as all the LRB Collection books, selected London Review Bookshop Limited Editions and the bestselling and never-not-relevant Boris Johnson: The Beast of Brexit – is sending out orders as normal.

And if you enjoy surprises, now is a great time to subscribe to the London Review Book Box – get a book, carefully selected by us here at the Bookshop, direct to your door once a month. And if you don’t like surprises, have a browse of our special themed gift boxes, where you know exactly what you’re getting – we’ll be putting more of these up in the near future, so stay tuned!
