Featured New Book
We currently have TWO signed copies of the stunning art book ‘An Approach to the Birds of the World‘ by internationally acclaimed artist, Tully Crook.

Signed and numbered, £150
We currently stock approximately 50,000 new titles covering almost every topic imaginable. To paraphrase our previous new books buyer, Guy, from the video about the bookshop; rather than stock many copies of a single book, we prefer to stock single copies of many books, therefore allowing us to cram as many books into the shop as is possible.
Eve and David keep our stock brimming with new releases and a fair section of the ground floor is given over to showcasing these new titles. The paperback displays are refreshed at the start of each month (and have £1 off) and the new hardback releases are displayed with between £1-£8 off.
If we don’t have what you’re looking for on the shelf, then please tell us – we may just take your recommendation and start stocking it. And if you require something ordering, we can usually get it in within 24 hours (if in print and still available).
As yet we don’t have such a thing as an online ordering system for new titles – save for a few randomly selected books to be found on this website – so should you wish to order or reserve via the website, an online enquiry form is your only option…

New Graphic Novel Display
The new graphic novel display is now up. Ranging from pocket-sized to extra large format, there is something here for any avid reader. Find them opposite the new fiction shelves.
We also have a growing number of second-hand graphic novels which can be found in the Art Room.
