Enjoy this taster of our book, Herb Lester’s London Address Book.

With any book we want available online, bookshops are finding new ways to appeal to customers. This one does so with an approach that abandons traditional categories, encouraging discovery with themed sections: ‘dark days’, ‘madonnas, mothers & whores’, ‘enlightenment’. All of which, along with little nooks in which to cosy up, careful lighting and a no phone policy, make it so suited for browsing that some might prefer it to their own home.
