BookartbookshopWe love this great little book shop. As the name suggests, you'll find books on art but, more specifically, they specialise in artists' books - and yes, there is a difference - which cannot be found anywhere else. Artists' books are the type you more usually see behind glass in an art gallery shop. Here, at Bookartbookshop, you can see publications from some of the best-known artist presses, without the stuffiness of a gallery but with friendly and approachable staff to help. Established in 2002 by Tanya Peixoto, co-founder of the Artist's Book Yearbook, this one of a kind specialist bookshop is a joy to find in the heart of London's East End art world.
