Very disappointed with my first experience purchasing from In The Book. Both books I ordered arrived with issues - one was bound incorrectly so the spine was bent, whilst the other contained very poor quality illustrations. Even the front cover illustration (Alice in Wonderland) was blurry. Throughout the pages, printing lines are visible and most images just look pale and blurry like a bad quality VHS. Customer service replied very quickly and were helpful - sending out immediate replacements no issue. One book is fine, the other is just as poor quality so I've requested a refund as it is not gift-worthy. Hopefully this will be actioned just as quickly. A shame and I certainly wouldn't recommend.
