INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “An irresistible tale which showcases the transformative power of literacy, reminding us of the hope and sanctuary our neighborhood bookstores offer during the perilous trials of war and unrest.” —KIM MICHELE RICHARDSON, author of The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek August 1939: London prepares for war as Hitler’s forces sweep across Europe. Grace Bennett has always dreamed of moving to the city, but the bunkers and blackout curtains that she finds on her arrival were not what she expected. And she certainly never imagined she’d wind up working at Primrose Hill, a dusty old bookshop nestled in the heart of London. Through blackouts and air raids as the Blitz intensifies, Grace discovers the power of storytelling to unite her community in ways she never dreamed—a force that triumphs over even the darkest nights of the war. “A gorgeously written story of love, friendship, and survival set against the backdrop of WWII-era London.” —JILLIAN CANTOR, author of In Another Time and Half Life “A love letter to the power of books to unite us, to hold the world together when it’s falling apart around our ears. This fresh take on what London endured during WWII should catapult Madeline Martin to the top tier of historical fiction novelists.” —KAREN ROBARDS, author of The Black Swan of Paris

A girl's quest to find her father leads her to an extended family of magical fighting booksellers who police the mythical Old World of England when it intrudes on the modern world. From the bestselling master of fantasy, Garth Nix. In a slightly alternate London in 1983, Susan Arkshaw is looking for her father, a man she has never met. Crime boss Frank Thringley might be able to help her, but Susan doesn't get time to ask Frank any questions before he is turned to dust by the prick of a silver hatpin in the hands of the outrageously attractive Merlin. Merlin is a young left-handed bookseller (one of the fighting ones), who with the right-handed booksellers (the intellectual ones), are an extended family of magical beings who police the mythic and legendary Old World when it intrudes on the modern world, in addition to running several bookshops. Susan's search for her father begins with her mother's possibly misremembered or misspelt surnames, a reading room ticket, and a silver cigarette case engraved with something that might be a coat of arms. Merlin has a quest of his own, to find the Old World entity who used ordinary criminals to kill his mother. As he and his sister, the right-handed bookseller Vivien, tread in the path of a botched or covered-up police investigation from years past, they find this quest strangely overlaps with Susan's. Who or what was her father? Susan, Merlin, and Vivien must find out, as the Old World erupts dangerously into the New. Garth Nix sets the standard for Fantasy (Leigh Bardugo) Garth Nix is one of the best world-builders in fantasy (BRANDON SANDERSON) A warm, whimsical delight--The Left-Handed Booksellers of London is a witty, clever adventure in an exquisitely detailed world you will love escaping into (Veronica Roth, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Divergent series, Carve the Mark series, The End and Other Beginnings, and Chosen Ones) This is my favorite kind of tale, one where the magic and the real nest together like pages in a book. A delightful read (V.E. Schwab, #1 New York Times Bestselling author of the Shades of Magic series and the Monsters of Verity series)

"London as a centre for business and culture provided the essential focus for the development of the English book trade. In physically constricted urban spaces, printing, bookselling and all the associated activities were organized in intricate topographical patterns. How this worked on the ground provides the central theme of this volume, containing original essays by specialists in a variety of related fields. Several chapters explore the communities of printers and booksellers around St. Paul's Cathedral and its neighbourhood in the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Other topics range across the areas of London associated with the print trade, and with French emigres in the book trade, to the output of private presses in the London suburbs in the nineteenth century."--BOOK JACKET.

For seven years Herb Lester has been documenting London's most interesting shops, restaurants, cafes, parks, museums and galleries in printed guides. Now we present Herb Lester's London Address Book, a selection of those places that make the city special. Small and tightly focused, our guides are concise city tours in a handy fold-out format that slips neatly into an intrepid traveler's pocket. Our aim is to introduce readers to new places as well as re-evaluating familiar ones, and we are as keen to find a new way to see the Louvre as we are to discover an untouched 1950s caf�. Informed by on-the-ground research, our one-sheet guides and maps uncover what makes a city special. They are written and researched in-house, and an Illustrated by who has been specially chosen for the subject designs each one. Whether it's an excursion into the greener areas of London (more numerous than you might think), Paris's beatnik bookshops, the otherworldly landscape just outside Reykjavik, or the watering holes of Brooklyn, we highlight what makes a place distinctive with our specialist knowledge and illustrations with vintage charm. In A6 format, the guides fit easily into a pocket and then expand out to A3 or A2 to display the attractions of each city. Each fine-quality sheet is litho-printed in England on 100% recycled stock.

A collection of Eleanor Crow s beautiful watercolours of classic shopfronts. Published in partnership with Spitalfields Life Books, this timely volume celebrates the small neighbourhood shops of London. As our high streets decline into generic monotony, we cherish these independent shops and family businesses that enrich the city with their characterful frontages and distinctive typography. This collection includes more than 100 of Eleanor Crow s fine illustrations of the capital's bakers, cafes, butchers, fishmongers, greengrocers, chemists, launderettes, hardware stores, eel & pie shops, bookshops and stationers. The pictures are accompanied by the stories of the shops, their history and their shopkeepers stretching all the way from Chelsea in the west to Bethnal Green, Clerkenwell and Walthamstow in the east. As well as beloved old and lost shopfronts, there are some recent examples of new shops that have been beautifully designed too from cheesemongers to chippies. At a time of momentous change in the high street, this witty and fascinating personal survey champions the enduring culture of Britain s small shops.

A NEW, VIVIDLY ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF THE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE OF ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST EXCITING CITIES. From 450,000BC and the earliest human remains in the Thames valley to the 2012 Olympics, and following the impacts of invasions, revolts and epidemics, this book shows how, against all the odds, an insignificant river crossing became the British capital. In fifteen thematic chapters exploring the lives and experiences of Londoners over the last three thousand years, Londonexplores everything form costermongers to the Krays, medieval Jewish ghettos to Georgian brothels, and the building of the Underground to the destruction of the Blitz. Images, objects and expert text from the Museum of London, together with maps both old and new, shine a fresh light on all aspects of the city's constantly changing story. Pubs and sports grounds, immigrant communities, health and popular religion, shopping, crime and gentrification are examined, along with urban development, planning from Christopher Wren to Patrick Abercrombie, art, politics and major events in London's history. Special 'Survivals' spreads seven show where buildings from London's past can still be seen today. Contemporary cartoons and paintings, startling artefacts and the museum's own reconstructions of ancient markets, temples and bathhouses, make the daily lives of Londoners and the city's chequered history come alive in this book as never before.
