Stumble upon this quaint little book store on a ramble through London's Holborn. Take a turn down Lamb's Conduit Street and uncover a row of charming independent shops, a gift buyer's dream.


Small but uncluttered, this shop is a treat for book lovers and explorers alike. Selling rediscovered 20th Century novels that have veered away from commercialism and into the insouciant world of neglected fiction, has proved note-worthy having been featured in Vogue, The Daily Telegraph, and as a recent Twitter search revealed, Made in Chelsea (but don't let the latter put you off.)

Pretty and thought provoking, these novels are tailored for the 21st Century woman – on the go but still in dire need of a bit of romance. Also lined up neatly on the vintage wooden bookshelves are cookery books, diaries and short stories, each introduced by an original preface. Designed in a dove-grey jacket unique to the little shop itself, a book from here would make a distinct gift for any literature lover. A book from Persephone's is a stylish read indeed.
