We wanted to spend our lives doing something we loved,” says co-owner Nic Bottomley about why he and his wife, Juliette, quit their jobs as lawyers to open a bookshop. “We were on our honeymoon and got the idea after visiting one of the world’s greatest independent bookshops, the Elliott Bay Book Company in Seattle.”

Mr B highlights include claw-foot bath book displays, toilets illustrated by former children’s laureate Chris Riddell, bibliotheraphy rooms, and the Bookshop Band, who play songs that they’ve written inspired by the books of guest authors.
