The London Bookshop Map entry for bookartbookshop said, “Artists’ books and small press publications.” Short and sweet but enough to pique my interest! It was a cute corner shop painted a beautiful vibrant red, with a swirly glass porthole window in the door. Inside was the size of my living room, if that, but packed floor to ceiling with lovely and amazing books of all types and subject matter. I was a bit overwhelmed by the numbers and variety, but I overheard the shopkeeper say they were a bit picked over by a recent visit from a group of special collections librarians. Huh, if this is “leftovers”… Anyway, I was left to my own devices to browse around, which I appreciated and enjoyed, but also got to overhear the conversation with a woman who came in to look at structures for ideas for a book project she was working on.
