Media professionals now have easy access to the latest and greatest media books thanks to the launch today of The Media Bookshop.
The Media Bookshop is an internet-only book store that brings together the advantages of a specialist bookshop and the ease of online shopping.
The site is run by Daryl Group, the people behind popular websites for journalists, marketing and PR professionals including Response Source, SourceWire and FeaturesExec.
The Media Bookshop features booklists for specific media disciplines such as advertising, digital marketing, film, graphic design, journalism, photography, public relations, web design and more. The booklists were put together with input from experienced media practitioners and will be regularly updated to include new releases and suggestions from the media community.
Company founder and chief executive Daryl Willcox said: “When I was at journalism school I remember getting all the books I needed from a dusty old book shop on Fleet Street. There was something very special about that place, but of course it disappeared years ago. I kept thinking it would be great if there was a media bookshop online, combining the expertise of a traditional specialist bookshop and the convenience of online shopping.”
Daryl has started a dedicated section on his blog where members of the media community can suggest media booklists.
To celebrate the launch The Media Bookshop is offering inspirational sourcebook Tell an Outrageous Lie, by Mandy Wheeler and James de Ville, at £7.20 – which is 40 per cent off the RRP. Seb Bailey, co-founder of The Mind Gym, described Tell an Outrageous Lie as “A wonderful creative catalyst”.
