Inside the shop – on the ground floor – you will find a well chosen selection of titles in both hardback and paperback. We have bestsellers and reference books, travel guides and a good mystery section. We also have a fine collection of children's books, including all the favourites plus a selection of excellent titles we've discovered over the years.
Our shop enjoys one valuable distinction: Primrose Hill is an area where many writers, artists and media-folk live. So don't be surprised to see local authors' works displayed in the window. These writers are our friends, and through their pages, your friends, too.
We also sell audiobooks, book tokens and greeting cards. Plus, we have our own series of postcards reproduced from the 18th and 19th century prints of local scenes.
The strength of our shop lies in the selection of titles chosen from the enormous quantity published each year. We are all avid readers and are delighted to introduce you to our favourite books. It is impossible to convey this as well as we might wish through a web site, so we try to do a bit more.
We produce our own catalogues twice a year – one for the summer and one at Christmas – and these detail books we have particularly enjoyed and which we recommend for the season.
If you wish to receive these catalogues and our occasional bulletins, please send us an e-mail with 'Subscribe' as the subject and we will add you to our e-mail list.
