Bas Bleu is a "bookseller by post," which is a melodic way of saying we're a mail-order company that produces a catalog of books and bookish things. We sell books and gifts that offer elements of wit, wisdom, and joy. Our selections are eclectic and rarely appear on bestseller lists.

Bas Bleu translates as "bluestocking," and refers to learned mid-eighteenth-century women (and men) who gathered in the great salons of London for intellectual conversation and witty banter. This literary salon "enjoyed society in undress" - that is, in their more practical country clothing, most notably their blue worsted stockings. The Bluestockings enlarged boundaries of what women could think, write, and do. Modern-day bluestockings are avid readers, have a sense of humor, and are eternally curious.

In 2007, Bas Bleu joined the Universal Direct Fulfillment family of brands, and our core mission remains unchanged. We pride ourselves on being a boutique literary catalog, an alternative to big-box booksellers. We offer fun and friendly personal recommendations, sorting through thousands of new offerings from publishers to find those inspired and high-quality books that our customers may not have heard of otherwise. If all of this sounds interesting to you, be sure to request our catalog. We hope you like what you see!
