The art of bookselling

20th August 2012

 

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.
