Temporary Inprint home page


Buying and selling interesting old books and other printed things. Promoting the secondhand and rare book trade.

For nearly 40 years Inprint ran this lively secondhand and out-of-print bookshop in Stroud, a small town in Gloucestershire, England. We retired from bookshop-keeping at the end of April 2018 and after a summer break we will be back selling our usual mix of interesting old books and other printed things - on the web and elsewhere. You will find our current contact details here.

"Immensely attractive style ... a lovely atmosphere ... it looks like something out of a film: The Bookman of Alcatraz!"  -  Drif's Guide   to the Secondhand & Antiquarian Bookshops of Britain. My favourite place in Gloucestershire" . -  Vernon Harwood BBC Radio Gloucestershire Breakfast Show.

Our Facebook page attempts to replicate the bookshop experience - the shop window may be virtual but the conversations are as random as they have always been.

Shelf : Life shares what's new in the world of old, rare, and collectable books, insights into book collecting, the news stories that matter, and occasional comments.

Defective Copy - Selected Ramblings of a Book Junkie sweeps up the gleanings from 40 years of bookdealing and 17 years of editing TheBookGuide.
