Persephone Bookshop- Lambs Conduit Street
31 May 2012
If anyone ever invents a program called 'Desert Island Bookshops' where you have to choose your top ten bookstores, I would definitely put Persephone in there. It's on one of my favourite London Streets, Lambs Conduit Street which is filled with some great independent shops.
Persephone is not just any bookstore because they actually publish "neglected classics" mostly by women and each of their books is a design lovers delight. Oh and I've loved all the books I've read from there too. Each book has a light silvery grey cover with endpapers printed with a textile design from the era of the book - along with matching bookmark.
When I opened my studio up as a shop I was very inspired by what they've done at Persephone because their shop is somewhere I could happily spend hours in. If you live out of London you can get their 'book a month' offer, where they send you something every month, lovely!
