Libernation Books: A little bookshop with big dreams

Hello, and thank you for visiting my bookish corner of the internet! Libernation Books is a dream in the making for over a decade. Since grade school, I've always wanted to open a bookstore--and finally, I made the dream come true in 2020.

Confession: I'm a huge bibliophile. I spend most of my days reading, writing, or studying for university. When I first learned about sprayed edged books, I completely fell in love with their aesthetics! The only problem is I usually don't have $40 to spring on a sprayed book, or the time to hunt down limited/exclusive sprayed edge editions from book subscription boxes. So, I decided to take things into my own hands and learned how to spray my own books (and sacrificing a couple books in the process)--and readers loved them when I shared pictures on my Instagram.

Thus, Libernation Books was born: it's both a dream and passion project of mine. I hope to offer these gorgeous sprayed edge editions to book lovers at an affordable price. I also hope you find as much joy as I do between these colored pages.

Happy readings,
Tina

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

For orders of 3+, please message me for a discount!

If you're looking to purchase 4 - 10 books with certain specifications (they make wonderful gifts and favors for bibliophiles!), please contact me and let me know your:

-desired genres
-desired book condition
-desired colors

Each book is lovingly hand selected and created, so I will need time to shop for certain book genre(s) if I don't already have them. I will also provide you a price quote + estimated turnaround time. Please note, at this time I can only take a maximum of 10 orders per bulk order.

What do the conditions mean?

new/like new - never been read, or read only once, might as well be buying a new book

very good - read 2-3 times, aside from the smallest detail, these books could be mistaken for new

good - read 3+ times, dust jacket corner is probably a little worn

PLEASE NOTE: if there are any significant marrs on the books (ie. creased dust jacket), I will include a close up picture of the imperfection so you know EXACTLY what you're getting.

How can I get my books shipped faster?

To keep costs low, I ship with media mail. However, if you would like faster shipping, please contact me and I will quote you the new shipping cost and time estimation.

Can I order if I don't live in the US?

Please contact me if you live outside of the US and I will let you know! Due to Covid restrictions, I may or may not be able to ship to your region.

But yes, international shipping is available. All books purchased outside of the U.S. will come with a freebie swag packet (stickers, bookmarks, etc).

Can I get customized sprayed book?

Yes! Schedule permitting, I can paint you a custom book. Custom books start at 38.00, and include your choice of 1-3 colors, book of your choice (up to 22.00 purchase value), and free US shipping.
