Lyra's Books


Welcome to our shop. Here you will find our handmade, limited edition books available to buy. If you have any questions about a specific item then please contact us and we will be happy to help.


Our next release is ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ by Oscar Wilde. Copies of this title will become available to buy on the 29th of January 2022.

The Lettered edition of this title will initially be available by lottery only. Existing rights holders will be offered this edition first and any copies not taken up will be entered into a public lottery. Before the main pre-order happens, a lottery form will appear on the product page for three days. Contact details can be entered into the form if the customer is willing to make the purchase. Winners will be selected at random and notified by email. If there are still copies remaining after the lottery, they will be added to the product page in the shop. Exact times will be announced in advance.

Copies 1-150 of the Numbered edition carry rights. Any copies with rights attached will be randomly allocated within the orders made in the first 24 hours. Copies 151-250 will not carry rights for future titles.

Delivery Details

  • All books will be packed into custom made, double walled cartons and surrounded by thick foam on six sides to ensure safe delivery.


  • The cost of shipping is included in the price of the books and all items will be sent with express couriers worldwide. This means that the books are in transit for the minimum time possible.


  • Deliveries within the UK will be sent via a 24 hour courier service. Delivery times elsewhere in the world will vary depending on your location, but I would hope that they will deliver within a few days. All services will be fully trackable and you will be sent a confirmation of shipping along with a tracking number when your parcel is booked with the courier.


  • All international deliveries, including to the EU, now have full customs declarations. Any import taxes, customs duties or fees must be paid for by the recipient. Customs policies vary from country to country and you should contact your local customs office for more information. Customs clearance procedures may cause delays and extend our quoted delivery time estimates.


  • We will begin binding these books in February 2022 and I hope to deliver some time in the second quarter of the year. I will post updates on social media and via website subscriber email as we go.
