Sandspout Bookstore

Our Stock

 

NEW BOOKS
“So many books, so little time,” said Frank Zappa. We have a serendipitous selection, mostly novels and poetry published in the first half of the twentieth century – British, American and European. They are arranged in chronological order, decade by decade, supposedly to allow the browser to make connections that might have otherwise been missed. Also various American stuff – books on jazz, boxing, skyscrapers.

SECOND-HAND BOOKS
“Second hand books are wild books, homeless books; they have come together in vast flocks of variegated feather, and have a charm which the domesticated volumes of the library lack,” said Virginia Woolf.
A few decades ago it would have taken Olympic champion Linford Christie nearly twenty seconds to run the length of the stock we have (but we would never let him because he wore spikes).

ANALOGUE STUFF
A range of hand-crafted, bespoke stationery product (Immaginacija) and fountain pens (for those who can remember how to use them?).

DIGITAL STUFF
We have a selection of new CDs, of jazz and classical music. For those who like to handle their music collection rather than download it.
