I’m Jamie, a bookseller from Birmingham, UK and the owner of LitPins&Co!
Having left university with a design degree, I landed in a bookshop and never seemed to find my way back out again - and why would I want to?
Readers are some of the best people in the world and they are exactly why I decided to use my design powers for good and started making bookish pins.
I want my pins to capture that pure sense of joy and belonging that we so often find in reading and share that passion and those moments with others.
I’m a huge fan of sci-fi, fantasy, YA, MG and graphic novels but will never say no to a good book - whatever the genre!
Some random facts about me:
🎂 I’m 29 and actually started LitPins&Co in 2019 but relaunched in earnest during Lockdown 1.0 2020.
🎓 My degree is in Illustration and Graphics.
📚 My favourite authors include: V. E. Schwab, Leigh Bardugo, Derek Landy, Cassandra Clare, and Pierce Brown.
🍊 I’m a Brummy – accent and all!
🐾 I have 2 guinea pigs (Cara and Chewie) and a cat called Katniss Everpurr!
🖤 I ADORE Stitch and collect figures and pins and plushies of him!
