Book Shop

Book Shop

Some book shops have the greatest settings… This second hand book shop in the close at Winchester Cathedral has one of the loveliest aspects that I have seen.
I spent the first 17 years of my life living in a three storey house which doubled as an antiquarian History bookshop, the shelves on my my bedroom walls charted the histories of the monarchs of Britain, the history of France and were home to obscure volumes dealing with the past decisions that have influenced all our lives to some extent. I only wish that I had been old enough to appreciate it and wise enough to chronicle it. Photos of that time must exist and I will show them here, the bookfairs, the others shops we visited and the booksellers we knew. Just give me a chance to find them…
