As well as selling unique gifts and accessories, Bloomsbury stocks an eclectic selection of books. It is only fitting that we should, inspired by the style and wit of the Bloomsbury set and the impressive literary heritage of Bath.
With independent book shops, literary events and festivals throughout the year, there is always something to excite book lovers in the city. Topping and Company Booksellers recently launched The Autumn Book Festival which runs until the end of November. As well as an array of novelists, biographers, humorists and nonfiction writers they have arranged some fantastic events in association with The Great BathFeast, inviting celebrity chefs and food writers to talk about their books. Guest speakers include novelist Joanna Trollope, crime writer Ian Rankin, rocker Brian May, the Great British Bake Off’s own Mary Berry and travel writer Bill Bryson.
Bloomsbury Store might not be able to compete with Topping and Company or Mr B’s Emporium but it is the place to find all the classic Tintin books and is renowned for its selection of art and design titles. Lovers of the Great Bath Feast will also find some gems on our shelves.
