illustration books introduction
We've been selling books and illustration art for over 40 years. We started trading in 1973 as Conquistador and were incorporated in 2001 and trade as The Book Palace. Our wide range of prestigious illustrated books covers book and comic illustration and includes first editions, limited editions and signed books.

We are the proud publishers of illustrators, the art quarterly featuring the world's finest illustrators and their art.

We also publish highly collectable illustrated books under the Book Palace Books imprint. These Limited Editions are produced to a very high standard and our growing list of titles are shown in the left hand column under 'Book Palace Books'!
