From the oldest bookshop in the world, to the smallest you could imagine, talks to authors about their favourite places, The Bookshop Book examines the history of books, and looks at over three hundred weirdly wonderful bookshops across six continents sadly, we've yet to build a bookshop down in the South Pole.
