Following our post about art and design book store Magma, we would like to introduce you to three more! These are all specialists bookshops which caught our eye!
The Vintage Magazine Shop
You will find collectable publications from The Picture Post to vintage copies of Esquire here. The selection of magazines and comics range from £2 to £200.
39 – 43 Brewer street, W1F 9UD
Claire de Rouen Books
Hidden away above a sex shop in Soho, Claire de Rouen Books is located on the 1st floor. It is the best specialist fashion and photography bookshop in London. Stocking out-of-print titles and the newest publications, this is the place where they know their Balenciaga from their YSL. Above the bookshop, there is also a cool little gallery as well.
121 – 125 Charing Cross Road, WV2H 0EW
Opened by John Hatchard in 1797 on Piccadilly, from where it still trades, Hatchards is a London classic. Its previous clientele says it all: Kipling, Wilde and Lord Byron. On the 5th July Michael Palin will be signing copies of his new book there!
187 Piccadilly, W1J 9LE
