Foyles 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.
This exhibition is free
Venue: The Gallery at FoylesOpening Hours: 15th - 26th August 2012Mon - Sat 9.30am - 5pm, Sunday 11.30am - 6pm*
