The London Book Trade Exhibition

Mike Tsang's exhibition The London Book Trade, a series of photographs of London book dealers and their books, is now showing at Biblion. "The environments the book dealers inhabit... often have distinct characters of their own," says Mr Tsang. Whilst I aspire to the beautiful shelves of Bernard Shapero, my reality is rather more that of Maggs Brothers' basement.

Sitting rather more elegantly somewhere in between, is Ibooknet's Stephen Foster, who is the subject of one of the portraits.
