Founded by Bolaji Babafemi, a freelance journalist and self-confessed bibliophile and stationery addict as an antidote to the much heralded demise of the printed word. Prints Please draws a lot of inspiration from the current renaissance in the print media sector and the new breed of lifestyle magazines and periodicals.
He says: “What better way to prove the naysayers wrong than by supporting the ecosystem of independent publishers from all over the world.
“I am a bibliophile and got hooked on the Ladybird series as a child and you will notice they are back in vogue again for adults, which means we can all revisit our childhood without feeling guilty.”
Bolaji adds: “Be prepared to be blown away with our concept studio shop brimming with a variety of printed products, magazines, fanzines, rare books and intuitive gifts for everyone in your life.
