Small but growing general selection, with an emphasis on illustrated, unusual and quirky titles, pop-up books and nice editions of modern and classic literature. Also a good Glasgow and Scottish selection. Just opened in Shawlands, as Glasgow's only Southside bookshop. We're buying as well, and we'd be delighted to find elusive items you're after.
