Persephone Press publish brilliant out of print books by female authors in history with class and style.  Their shop was a delight to explore, and I can easily see myself building a collection of these beautiful books!

Book Thoughts

 

Jeeves & Wooster bench

Jeeves and Wooster, P.G. Wodehouse. (The Brunswick)

Where better to read than sat atop a giant book? When I heard about this temporary art exhibition from The National Literacy Trust I decided to hunt them out – and I did! I love the concept and design and hope it will encourage people to read some of these excellent examples of British literature. There are 50 book benches spread around the city and I’ve found three so far – find the rest and more details here.
