House of Books Installed

When we commissioned Su Blackwell to make a book (and gave her books from five centuries to use!), we had no idea what she would decide to make.

Now we can reveal the result – a stunning sculpture celebrating the world of books, based on our own shop. And filled with silhouettes of customers and friends, making it an amazing and amazingly personal work for us to share.

We’re grateful to Su for creating such a special piece – and hope you’ll be able to stop by to see it, now that Prospero’s Project is open (Friday to Monday from 1 to 5, since you ask!)
