'Catawiki reaches exactly the right target audience I'm looking for. This is extremely beneficial for me. I started out small, but now I can live from the sales I make on Catawiki.'
Seller: Anything Else
'Spanish art is appreciated much more than we thought it would be abroad. We really had no idea about the international market until we joined Catawiki.'
Seller: El Testamento de Baron
The global stage that Catawiki provides is extremely attractive as it cuts out the astronomical costs associated with traditional auction houses and art galleries and helps me promote and sell my work on a large scale.'

About Catawiki's Book auction

Collections of written material have existed in some form for thousands of years. Among the earliest specimens are the clay tablets of Mesopotamia and Egyptian Papyrus containing ancient hieroglyphs. In Europe, hand-copied religious manuscripts were common until the invention of the printing press by the German blacksmith, Johannes Gutenberg in 1440. Since Gutenberg’s discovery, books and printed material have had a profound impact on human civilisation - enabling the sharing of knowledge on a global scale. Today, dealers and collectors around the world buy and sell in order to meet the huge global demand for rare books.

With thousands of lots each week, viewed by millions of potential bidders, Catawiki offers a dedicated online marketplace for selling your treasured books. Our auctioneers are experts when it comes to antique books on a huge range of subjects - they supervise our book auctions. Furthermore, our notary officials work to guarantee the validity of bids, offering complete peace of mind for sellers. What’s more, Catawiki’s secure payment system offers buyers and sellers a great online marketplace experience.
