Visit your local independent bookshop to pick up your free copy of The London Bookshop Map with a new work by Hannah Rickards.
Independent bookshops fill the gaps left by high street chains, stocking thoughtful and idiosyncratic choices of books rather than market-driven selections. They sustain local interests and offer different ways for communities to participate in a range of cultural activities. They are crucial platforms for alternative publishing.
The London Bookshop Map supports and promotes independent bookshops and uses the printed map as a platform to commission and distribute new work by contemporary artists. The map is printed annually and previous issues have featured new writing by David Batchelor and Katrina Palmer.
