I liked the name, and the description: We specialise in books on the contemporary visual arts and visual culture, covering the subjects; fashion, graphic design, architecture, photography, fine art and visual & critical theory. We also stock a very wide range of magazines on these subjects. And, it was not far from the Must Go To Shop. Artwords was also full of books, but all new and trade published and stacked or displayed at right angles on sleek white fixtures. Verging on too modern/hipster for my taste, and perhaps suffering from comparison to the all the other places I’d already been too so I wasn’t fresh and also had packages so it was a bit difficult to look at things. But, it was a nice shop and would be worth going to if you are interested in those topics.
