Bar Hopping Into History

One of the best things about running the shop is when local artists come in with cool projects to show me. 

The latest example is Bar Hopping Into History, a history of London's drinking holes by Kym Wolfe and beautifully illustrated by Cheryl Radford. This book was a passion project for both of them, and it shows. It's crammed full of fascinating info about London's oldest drinking holes. They focused on locations that have been around for more than 100 years.

Can you guess which tavern was rumoured to be a hotbed for spies during the American civil war? It's still open!

Cheryl and Kym hope their book will get people out exploring and get people to start looking around and appreciating the architecture that London has to offer.

At $13.95, it makes a great gift.

Check it out!
