I took a photo of Norbert recently that I liked, so I decided to make a portrait, along with a #letterpress print of Dr Johnson's famous feline quote. I used wallpaper as the background, and Norbert is hand painted. The framed pic is going to @addymanbooks, and the unframed pic into my Etsy shop unless someone would like it direct. The lovely little ornament is by @midoritakaki whose work you will love ❤

Tomorrow is Yom Kippur, the most sacred day in the Jewish Calendar. We spend the day fasting so there will be no #booksellersbreakfast


I will be thinking about the past year and the things I could have done differently or better. We will also be thinking of those we have loved and have lost. This year in Hay, three close friends have died: Eugene Fisk the artist, Rhona Muirhead, one of the founders of the Hay Festival and just about the most creative and generous person I have ever met and lastly Christine Turnbull, who for many years was my closest friend. I miss them and wish I had spent more time with them when they were alive. Though my life often seems busy it is important to remember to share time those you love.
This morning, an aunt of mine died in Indiana. Milly Brichto was a beloved sister-in-law to my much younger father. She helped foster in him a love of poetry and literature which in turn was passed on to me. He often spoke of how Milly told him the story of Oscar Wilde’s Happy Prince. He never forget it and often retold it to us - his children. We in turn have read it to our children. Myths, stories and religion have been created to help us live more fulfilled and less destructive lives. I am lucky to have had family and friends that have enriched my life in the past and I know this will continue. Happy New Year and well over the fast to anyone celebrating but also much love to the many generous and knowledgeable, book-loving friends (of all religions or no religion) that I have met through IG.

At Hay on Wye, the entire village is just one massive library with unmanned “honesty bookshops” 📚

Do you think it's time to move in?
#hayfestival #hayonwye #books

I've visited Hay so many times and it's still so much fun. Maybe it has something to do with the sweets, ice cream and books?

Again didn't manage to get many pics from this year's gathering. These make up for it tho ❤️ such beautiful cousins I have #jonesfamilygathering #hayonwye #makingmemories #youngergeneration #happybaby #beautifulyounglady #feelingblessed

Today the remaining leaf of the gate was safely removed by John Nethercott & Co. Now both sides of the gate will be restored by their qualified team. We are very fortunate to have such skilled professionals just on our doorstep. #hlfsupported #haycastle #pilgrimtrust #hayonwye #gates

Does anyone out there collect @faberbooks crime? I love these paperback editions, designed by Pentagram, using these incredible illustrations by Nick Hardcastle. He also did some of the early Ian Rankin hardbacks.
We are selling these for £3.95 to £4.95 each. DM if you want any. I think they are extraordinary.

Hay-on-Wye is sooooo dog friendly. They were lovely here at Eve’s when the humans stopped for lunch

Looking every bit the princess in the changing room in @otherworldzhay We were made a fuss over and were very welcome even though I was a bit excited. Do visit and get your cuddles if you’re in the area 🐾🐶

Fantastic to have these @hayfestival titles back in stock! #fairlycool #hayonwye #ethicalshopping #fairtrade #townofbooks

THE RETURN OF FIZZ!
Those of you who have been in the bookstagram world for over two years may remember Fizz, the fairground goldfish belonging to Sahara and her mum @doing.it.differently Each winter they go to Goa and every other year I have the pleasure of this long-lived goldfish’s company. So he is sharing a #tinytuesday #booksellersbreakfast with us and an early reprint of The Adventures of Tom Bombadil by J R R Tolkien. I love the cover design by Pauline Baynes (she did the Narnia stories in the most perfect way possible)
We have two copies of this in stock, both in wrappers with the same illustration. DM us for details. Fizz apart from living years longer than most is a very curious and interactive creature. As goldfishes go he seems quite special. He likes it when I change the book scenery behind him and always seems pleased to see me in the morning and after work. Feeding times!
