The Tidy Books story began when Geraldine was looking for a bookcase for her young daughter Adele, and she found she just couldn't buy the bookcase she had in mind. She wanted a practical, compact bookcase that would be easy for her to use independently, and that would show the books' front covers
Originally from Paris, Geraldine moved to train at the renowned Newark School of Violin Making, and then worked at the Royal Academy of Music. After which, she set up her own business making violins, violas and cellos for professional musicians.
Traditional bookcases (decorated or not) for children simply made no sense to her. Adele's books, like most children's books were outsize,differently shaped and hard to keep tidy. As you know, children don't choose books from the spine but from the cover, and when a child takes a book from a traditional bookcase, the rest collapse.
The idea of a "Tidy Books" bookcase was compelling, so in her spare time, Geraldine began designing a new book storage system in my violin workshop. She created the first "Tidy Books" bookcases for herself and friends, who loved them, and so the Tidy Books business was born.
She designed the Tidy Books bookcase to work for children and to be practical, to enable them to explore their books independently.The alphabet on the bookcase was added so that children could learn while playing casually and gradually. Many Parents have told her how much kids love their books and how important they are. The Tidy Books bookcase displays books to their full effect, giving them a central place in the home.
Since then Tidy Books has expanded, with more ideas including the Bunk Bed Buddy™ and the Tidy Box™, all designed to fulfil a practical need, look good and be a lasting addition to the family home.
