The art of bookselling
20th August 2012 - 12 Midnight
Our booksellers are already renowned for their love of literature, but beneath those bookish exteriors also lies a wealth of artistic talent. Now for the first (though not the last) time, we're putting that talent on display, showcasing the original work, from painting to illustration, photography to design, of your favourite booksellers, in our Gallery on the Third Floor at Charing Cross Road. The exhibition runs until 26th August.
Here are some pictures from last week's private view for staff, which also featured some of of our musically gifted booksellers performing.
The artists featured here are (from top to bottom): Jim Elliott (Classical Music CDs, Charing Cross Road; www.jim-elliott.co.uk); Virginia Garramone (Children's, Charing Cross Road; email@example.com); Patrick Wray (Fiction, Charing Cross Road; www.patrickwray.com); Frances Christina Brown (Travel, Charing Cross Road; firstname.lastname@example.org); Ellie Jenkins (Bristol Cabot Circus; www.elliejenkinsillustration.co.uk); Alistair Redding (DVDs, Charing Cross Road; email@example.com), Rebecca Cameron (Manager, Westfield White City; firstname.lastname@example.org); Sofia Hericson (Visual Merchandising; www.sofiahericson.com). Contact details for all artists are displayed at the exhibition.
