This much-loved shop sells a quirky collection of coffee-table books, magazines, card games and stationery, most on the themes of typography, graphic design and architecture, keeping with the surrounding buildings full of ad agencies and architecture studios. It has some lovely children's books and games too, including Bird Bingo, which was developed by one of the shop's founders.
