Book Towns

"Sometimes you need more than just one book, more than just one bookshop.  Sometimes you need a whole book town."  Across the world, the book town movement has fought back against the predicted death of the printed book and the independent bookseller, and brought new visitors to many rural locations which have rebranded themselves as book towns. This colourful book by The Independent Online columnist and writer Alex Johnson is full of photographs of the locations it lovingly describes, and offers a guide for visitors and inspiration to potential travellers wishing to explore new destinations, as well as making illuminating reading for anyone interested in books and bookshops and their histories.
