Love the way my books turned out! I mentioned that the colors of my room were light blue, dark blue, and gold, and I think these books were the perfect addition to my shelves! She also sent a picture before shipping, and once I confirmed the books they were shipped soon after!

Opening the box felt like Christmas all over again! I ordered the books in green and they are beautiful with just enough variation in size and shade to add visual interest. Can't wait to buy more for other rooms in the house!

I ordered 3 different colored books to display on some shelving in our guest bedroom. I thought I knew what colors I needed but I still sent in a picture or two of other items I was trying to coordinate the books with. The seller quickly sent me a picture of 3 different books and asked for my approval before sending. The books are really nice quality books. Excellent communication. Quick shipping. Reasonable pricing. I am thrilled with my purchase. Thank you so much!
