Coming up at the store
Hello! We are António and Joana, two artists with a mutual appreciation for children's books and what makes them good. One day we thought of opening a shop to celebrate and promote the culture of children's books. We wanted to make available, in one place, all the best books that we could find, from all over the world. We wanted to showcase the real diversity of what a children's book can be, from the illustrated book to the artist's book, from independent publications with limited editions to books that are distinguished by their construction or printing processes. We decided we'd also host workshops for children and adults, led by professionals from the industry, focused on the creative aspects of children's books.

The shop
It's a Book Livraria Oficina opened its doors on November 19, 2016, in the central Lisbon neighbourhood of Anjos. The neighborhood is a mix of young families and older traditional residents, and new and old immigrants, and the store fits in perfectly.
Website was launched on our 1 year anniversary. We aim to present to you here a rotating selection of the best books we find, so visit often and sign up for the newsletter (below) to stay informed!
