Established in 2014, Test Centre Books is the dealership element of Test Centre, where we buy and sell books and magazines connected to our interests and influences. We specialise in a variety of fields including little magazines of the Mimeograph Revolution; underground fiction and poetry; lowlife and underworld fact and fiction; and aspects of film and modern art.

Much of our stock can be viewed and searched at AbeBooks, and we welcome queries about our many items which are not online. We also issue two catalogues per year of new stock, in April and October, prior to putting the items on AbeBooks. Our latest catalogue, released in October 2018, can be viewed below. If you would like to receive future catalogues please contact Will Shutes at will[at], or sign up to our email mailing list below.

We are keen to buy individual items and collections suggested by our catalogues and stock, and we are equally interested in unusual and unfamiliar books and magazines. We are also experienced at working with archives and building libraries, and are available to work on projects large or small.
