Covid shipping disruption:
Royal Mail has resumed services to Europe and the rest of the world.
Delays to delivery are very likely at the moment due to widespread disruption caused by the current global pandemic.
We encourage customers ordering from outside the UK to consult the Royal Mail's International Incidents Bulletin to see updates on potential delays for deliveries to their country. This can be found here: International Incidents Bulletin.
For updates on deliveries within the UK please consult the Royal Mail Service Update.
The delivery time estimates below do not include delays related to the pandemic.
Free Royal Mail 2nd Class delivery on orders over £25.
Other postage options can be selected on the Cart Page.
Postage costs and options are automatically calculated by weight on the Cart Page.
Occasionally, on unusually heavy or large orders, postage costs vary from the automatic quote given. On these very rare occasions, a manual quote will be given and the purchaser can choose to proceed with the purchase or cancel the order and receive a full refund.
All orders are dispatched within 5 working days, though usually within 2 (with the exception of pre-orders, which ship on the day of release).
When an order of multiple books includes a pre-order, all books will be sent together on the release date of the pre-order book.

Due to the nature of magic books, and the value in the secrets they hold, returns are only accepted when a book has arrived in a condition differing from the photographs and description on the listing. Regretfully, returns can not be accepted for purchases made in error unless we are notified before the books have been dispatched.
