Off to Japan!
Hello folks, I've closed up the bookshop until May! I'm spending the rest of the month working on other projects, writing and travelling around Japan. (The bookshop will still be open, naturally, I just won't be there). I've been filming ahead so eight videos will go up when I'm away www.youtube.com/jenvcampbell - I got your bookish needs covered :) - and if you want to follow my adventures, you can keep an eye on Twitter (www.twitter.com/aeroplanegirl) and Instagram (www.instagram.com/jenvcampbell) :) (I will be signing books in Tokyo at some point, probably the 26th or 27th April - more details on that later) xx

From the oldest bookshop in the world, to the smallest you could imagine, The Bookshop Book examines the history of books, talks to authors about their favourite places, and looks at over three hundred weirdly wonderful bookshops across six continents (sadly, we’ve yet to build a bookshop down in the South Pole). The Bookshop Book is a love letter to bookshops all around the world.
