A wonderfully presented gift set for the ardent book lover in your life, with 11 different sets available (suggestions welcome for more ideas!) to suit the tastes of all your literary friends. Please see below for details of the collections on offer.

You will receive 4 literary coasters, each 10cm x 10cm, on French Vanilla cream glass. They come with rubber feet for stability (see last photo). There will also be a "worn paper" effect cardboard tag with every set, detailing on one side the books and authors in the set, and on the other side, a custom illustration, designed specifically for my literary coaster sets by Phil Hatchard (see the bottom of the listing for a link). They will all be held together with either dark green garden twine (pictured), brown jute style rope, or plain white packaging string, depending on what string I have in stock. Some natural rustic string to give a "homely" feel to your perfect gift.

These coasters are also available individually, or with other books printed on them: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/67475962/1-x-literary-coaster-made-to-order-with?ref=shop_home_active_12
This set of 4 works out slightly cheaper, as I already have these specific templates set up. If you would like less then 4, or different books (even a set of 4) they will be available at the higher price of the individual coaster through the listing above, simply change the "quantity required" if you want more than 1.

Saw this on a mug posted to Twitter and crediting this shop. I have enough mugs, but LOVE it on this coaster with the stand I got from your store. 10 out of 10 would recommend.
