perrsephoneWe found the wonderful Persephone Bookshop on Lamb's Conduit Street in London the other day. From the shop they also run their ‘Longtail’ publishing business. Persephone finds out of publication great literature that has been all but forgotten. These novels, mainly written by women, are reprinted and bound in their signature gray covers (the inside covers feature patterns or prints from the year that the book was first published).

We found the wonderful Persephone Bookshop on Lamb’s Conduit Street in London the other day. From the shop they also run their ‘Longtail’ publishing business. Persephone finds out of publication great literature that has been all but forgotten. These novels, mainly written by women, are reprinted and bound in their signature gray covers (the inside covers feature patterns or prints from the year that the book was first published). The About section on their site says:

Persephone prints mainly neglected fiction and non-fiction by women, for women and about women. The titles are chosen to appeal to busy women who rarely have time to spend in ever-larger bookshops and who would like to have access to a list of books designed to be neither too literary nor too commercial. The books are guaranteed to be readable, thought-provoking and impossible to forget. We sell mainly through mail order, through selected shops and we have our own shop.
