We are open for business even during lockdown, but please allow slightly longer to despatch your orders.


 We have given our shop a fresh new design and more user-friendly features. The modern look makes browsing simpler and we have extended the search options. One of the new features introduces searchability by publisher. Shipping costs are now displayed under each title, so you don't have to wait until checkout.  
Can't pick up your hard copy of the latest IMO publication? We offer a full range of E-readers and E-books.
An IMO Publishing e-reader is bookmarked, indexed and presented in an EBK file format which is viewed using the free software - the IMO Bookshelf. This is a Windows-based e-reader software only, therefore MACs are not supported.
The e-reader is a replica of the printed title. E-readers are available for all titles in English with some in French and Spanish. Once purchased, e-readers are instantly accessible and locked to a specific computer.
Electronic copies of older IMO publications are available as an e-book in PDF format.
