Synopsis

Follow the story of the world’s greatest bookshop from William and Gilbert Foyle’s humble beginnings selling their unwanted textbooks, via its glamorous literary luncheons and the arcane retail practices which amused and infuriated our customers in equal measure, to the the reinvention of Foyles as a bookshop for the twenty-first century. The book includes a foreword written by our Chairman, Christopher Foyle, who masterminded this modernisation, while ensuring that the shop retained its its vast range of titles, unrivalled by any other bookshop in ther world, and its knowledgeable and passionate staff.
