Katherine regularly reviews art books and has a very extensive art library (4 bookcases and lots of stacks waiting for the next one!)

How to find a good art bookshop

This site is developing a list of good art bookshops.

Starting with bookshops in LONDON, the intention is to identify other good bookshops in the UK and other countries

Naturally it's a work in progress and new links will be added from time to time.

If you know of a good bookshop and would like to recommend it please leave your suggestion as a comment

National Gallery Bookshop - in the Sainsbury Wing

Many thanks to the Manager for allowing me to take photographs for my review of the bookshop - see Art Bookshop Review: The National Gallery Bookshop

Where you can find art books in London #1 - Bookshops in Art Galleries and Museums in London

These are the museums and art galleries which have good bookshops

Foyles - About a third of the section relating to Art books

Foyles Art Books
Foyles Art Books

Where you can find art books in London #2 - Commercial Art Book Shops

Below you'll find a range of commercial bookshops which provide:

- a comprehensive selection of art books

- or stock specialist art books

By and large the best range of art books can be found in the 'flagship' stores of notable book stores

Hatchards Bookshop - a good selection of World Art
