Small and beautiful, this independent bookshop is a welcome addition to this hip enclave of East London.


This bookshop is a bibliophile's paradise, with its carefully curated shelves. Books are grouped by theme, such as family, love, and the sea and the sky.

The shop hosts an array of events, from spoken word to bespoke art installations. There are also regular appearances from a range of authors, artists and thinkers. Previous guests have included Jeanette Winterson and Lily Cole.

Designed by award-winning Spanish architects Selgas Carro, this bookshop provides a haven from modern life as it has a no-phone policy. It also has a printing press in its basement, which runs printing courses.
