Spellbound Children’s Bookshop Online

On first load the header for Spellbound's site has animated stars.

Spellbound Children’s Bookshop is an independent bookstore in downtown Asheville specializing in children’s books. A website with full content management allows them a lot of flexibility in communicating to their clients and supporting their excellent customer service.

They can post events such as book clubs, author signings and story times, all accessible through sidebar lists and a graphical calendar interface. Of great importance is their ability to post recommendations, reviews and previews of books, sorting them by age groupings.

In styling the site, we took cues from their existing logo, which is fun and dynamic. Giving some animation to the header on first load, bold colors throughout and a background that ties into the logo.

If you are in downtown Asheville, stop in. They are located at 19 Wall Street, or visit Spellbound online at:
