The Elusive Impala, Vintage Books and Prints

We are an independent seller with a passion for rare and vintage books& prints committed to creating a close relationship with our customers and providing a unique individual service. ImpalaPrints offer items that we believe would make wonderful gifts, we focus on books that are in good condition, unique, colourful, full of history, rare and on subjects we know people will love.

Based in the UK we offer a service that is diverse and international in its outlook, indeed so far we have completed orders from almost 40 different countries.

We hope we have inspired you to explore our site as we are confident you will find something that encapsulates you or a loved one. In conversation with our customers we find that our items make ideal gifts, an item that can be cherish for all time.

For example we recently sold an 1800s poetry book to a customer from the USA. The book had previously been owned by a school head mistress and through the inscription on the inside cover we were able to research her long and fascinating life. The customer was very thankful and we were excited to learn that the book was a gift for a current headmaster. He was thrilled to receive the item and was fascinated with the historic background of the item and its relevance to him in the 2017. We love these connections and are keen to have a close and productive relationship to all of our customers.
