It's Christmas Eve and Theo – left at home with a babysitter – sees an odd-looking star out of his window and decides to make a wish. He wishes that he had some friends to keep him company. Moments later the Christmas decorations begin to disentangle themselves from the tree behind him, ready to wreak a little havoc ...
•🎄•
Written with generous helpings of warmth and humour, this is a story about treasuring the people and values that really matter at this time of year from master storyteller and bestselling children's author Katherine Rundell, creator of Rooftoppers and The Wolf Wilder. Emily Sutton's breathtaking illustrations capture the magic of the season in stunning detail, making this the perfect Christmas gift.

Let it Snow.... Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we've no place to go
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

It doesn't show signs of stopping
And I've bought some books for reading
The mulled wine and mince pies are ready
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

When the fire dies down to embers
How I'll hate to put down my good book!
But if you promise I can read more tomorrow
All my dreams will be warm.

The fire is gently glowing
And we're still avidly reading
We can't put down our books yet, so
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

A few pretty little books from the Hamish Hamilton Novel Library series 🌟💛🌟
These 3 are from 1948-49 and I love the patterned boards. •

It was wonderful to meet Jackie Morris today when she popped into the shop to sign a few of her books for us. I'm going to be creating a tempting window display soon! All signed copies of #TheLostWords are already reserved but I'm hoping to see Jackie again soon at Compton Verney, so if anyone would like to order a signed copy, please let me know! We also have signed copies now of lots of Jackie's other beautiful books - let me know if you have any special requests. The exhibition of #TheLostWords opens at #comptonverney on Saturday 21st October & continues until 17th December.

Our #BookshopPaddington with his copy of the very beautiful Lost Words by Robert MacFarlane and Jackie Morris. One of my favourite books of 2017. #thelostwords #booksandink #igbooks #bookstagram #bookish #illustrated #illustratedbooks #indiebanbury #shoplocal #banbury

This set of the Lord of the Rings are all later printings of the second edition - printed in 1978. The second edition was first published in 1966 but the books themselves were first published in 1954-55. Early printings of the second edition had grey dust jackets but I rather like these bright and bold later editions - quite a handsome looking set on the bookcase.

Robert Gibbings quite literally breathes life into his wood engravings and this is one of my favourite books of his. 'Coming Down the Wye' is another of his books that I particularly love. •

Gibbings was born in Ireland in 1889 and, apart from time spent studying medicine and serving with the Royal Munster Fusiliers in the First World War, he devoted the rest of his career to art, sculpture and wood engravings. 🎨

Gibbings was one of the founder members of The Society of Wood Engravers in 1920. As well as writing a number of books of his own, Gibbings illustrated numerous other books throughout his career. Between 1924 and 1933 he owned and ran The Golden Cockerel Press, which is known for its beautifully hand-printed limited edition publications. Robert Gibbings died in 1958. 📖

Inscriptions in books range from the fairly uninspiring to heart-stoppingly beautiful. I've just found this inscription this morning. There's so much meaning in these few words - an untold story - and I can't help but imagine what made 1944-1945 such a sad or difficult year for the recipient of this book and how lucky she must have felt to have two such wonderful friends. 💔


The inscription reads: "15th July 1945. May the Returns of this Birthday be Happier than the Memories of the Last. With Love and Very Best Wishes from Joan and Joy. Wrens may come, and Wrens may go. We three go on forever." •

It seems likely that these three friends were all serving in the Women's Royal Naval Service, or Wrens as they were commonly known, in the Second World War and they've clearly been through some tough times, probably suffered some heartbreaking losses and yet their friendship endures and I would image, is a source of great comfort. 📖

We really enjoyed seeing you all and had a fab #BookshopDay Added bonus is that our impromptu book sale outside raised £72.00 for #alansafrica - Thank You!

If he's still reading it after the weekend I'll take a pic.

The horrors of sellotape used in book repair ...aaaaaaagggghhh! Sellotape or equivalents are fine for sticking together battered and bruised textbooks but when it comes to collectables or any books you want to keep or preserve, I recommend using an acid free repair tape instead. Acid free tissue and acid free paper repair tapes are both readily available online and from some art supply shops. This dust jacket has now had all the old acidic tape removed but it has left these dark brown marks, corroded the paper and left the paper very brittle. Go for #acidfree to preserve your book collection for years to come. #conservation #bookrepair #dustjacketrepair #igbooks #bibliophiles #bookcollecting #bookcollectors #booksandink #banbury

#hauntedtales17 Day 2 tag is #wornoutpages so I've used #Tithe by #hollyblack which I've had in a box for maybe 7/8 years and didn't pick up until this year!! I've been wanting to rant and rave about how bloody fantastic this book is so here goes 🥁 Without spoiling much, this book follows modern nomad Kaye, who goes back to her childhood home where she once had imaginary friends, now a teen, she tries to juggle life with her imaginary friends being real life faeries and meeting a handsome stranger one night that turns out to be a knight belonging to an evil queen! If you love #acotar you will LOVE LOVE LOVE this book! Even though it was published over a decade ago, it brings fantasy to modern times in a beautifully believable way ✨ .
