If you’ve been down Petergate way today you’re probably wondering about all the old books in our window. They are in the window firstly because we have them and think they are lovely and something worth showing off. Secondly we have an event running on Wednesday evening at 6.30pm. As part of Oxfam Bookfest (which starts today) local Bookbinder Brian Cole from The Castle Bindery on Stonegate, will be giving a talk and demonstration on the history of bookbinding. We are all extremely excited by the event.

Of course all the books are for sale they are priced from £5 up to £100 so even if you can’t make it to the talk you can always pop in and buy yourself a lovely and old book.
