About Little Gestalten
gestalten's origin story began with a focus on the aesthetic, particularly that of graphic design and, over the last two decades, the scope of both content and expertise has widened. In 2014, Little Gestalten joined the literary ranks and ensured that there was a place for readers of all ages within the world of gestalten.
“Make it a rule never to give a child a book you would not read yourself.”
These words from George Bernard Shaw are at the heart of Little Gestalten's vision. Pairing compelling stories with striking visuals, our picture books, nonfiction, illustrated stories, and pop-ups captivate children of a variety of ages and appeal to discerning adults.
As parents, we very much enjoy the books on offer by Little Gestalten and love to present these to our customers in the Netherlands and internationally via our shop online.

Misc Store supports
climate change solutions
& plants a tree for every order
Importing from countries as far as Japan & shipping worldwide has more of an impact than we would like.
That is why we plant a tree for every order + we plant an additional 2 trees each day.
Furthermore, we offset the individual carbon footprint of our staff, including travel per individual under 8,000 km by car or 2 short-haul return flights annually, by funding climate change solutions through Ecologi.
Investing in projects focused on carbon avoidance is not the same as simply buying carbon offset certificates, that is why we have chosen to work with Ecologi.
