WHO WE ARE...
My name's Andrew and I've always had a great love of reading, and also of books themselves. There's nothing better than browsing the shelves of a bookshop and finding something that you just want to dive into. Even the smell of a book brings me joy!
I refer to this section as 'about us', rather than 'about me' because, to get to where I am today has been a journey that lots of us have shared: from publishers to authors; from makers to designers, from painters and decorators to artists and, from friends and family to my partner.
As authors dedicate books, I'd like to dedicate this venture to all of those that have helped me to realise a dream. I've never worked in publishing or the book industry; I've never owned my own business; I've merely wanted, one day, to own a bookshop and now I do!
My vision was always to offer an alternative to online and large chain bookshops in terms of giving smaller publishers and up-and-coming authors a platform; to looking at alternatives to the mainstream and to giving both adults and children somewhere to come and enjoy my love of books and of reading. I hope you find something that brings you joy and, if you're looking for something particular, or for a recommendation, please come in and chat. I look forward to meeting you.
