Annual Book Sale

The much loved annual Courtauld book sale returns once again this autumn, offering thousands of books at amazing prices with all proceeds (over £100,000 since its inception) going to support student travel grants.


This year’s sale dates are:

Monday 5th October private preview for staff and students 10:00am – 12:00pm

Open to all until 5:30pm

Tuesday and Thursday 10:00am – 9:00pm

Wednesday and Friday 10:00am – 5:30pm

The Courtauld Institute of Art Foyer
North Wing, Somerset House
London WC2R 0RN


We rely completely on donations of new and used books (in good condition) on all subjects – no single issues of periodicals or auction catalogues please.

Donations can be brought to the Courtauld reception during business hours, (9.30am-5.30pm, Monday – Friday), from Monday 10 August until mid-September.

Volunteers needed

The book sale is entirely run by a team of wonderful volunteers under the leadership of Courtauld alumna Eva-Marie Barker (MA 2007). We are always looking for volunteers so if you are able to spare time to join the team – either to help price books during September, or sell books during the sale, then please get in touch.

Help us promote the sale

All proceeds raised go directly to helping Courtauld students so please help us to spread the word as widely as possible!
