The Strand Bookstore
I am rarely lost for words when it comes to books! But this independent bookstore was something else. I was rooted to the spot, with my jaw open, in the art section, as this was an entire floor, of wall-to - wall books on my favourite subjects. The cherry on the cake was a rare book section (accessed by a lift!), the books here were worth a fortune and wrapped in plastic covers. You could climb up on the ladders and browse one-off artists books, limited editions and gallery catalogues. Heaven!
