“Truly Delightful”

Persephone Books Ltd
Ranked #124 of 801 Shopping in London
Attraction details
Reviewed September 2, 2013

If you love books and books by women authors and want to see a darling shop with a wonderful staff, please visit Persephone Books. I won't repeat the positive things that others have said about the books - my sister and I bought several and would love to return. The area is attractive and welcoming - we ate at a little bistro right next to the shop. A delightful visit and a highlight of our trip to London.

This little shop in lambs conduit street should be top of the list for those visiting the city who appreciate books. I spent a happy hour in this shop, looking at the publications, printed by Persephone in their distinctive house style. Each title has its own distinctive end paper concealed within the plain cover. My advice to any of you reading this review, is to go there if you possibly can, and if you can't you can always wander through their excellent website instead.

My daughter in law encouraged me to explore this bookstore. It is a small shop and printing business with the most delightful selection of books primarily written by women. Most of the books have very plain covers with beautiful fabric prints inside the cover. Each book comes with a special bookmark. Aesthetically and intellectually satisfying. They will ship books...a wonderful and unique gift!
