Barter Books

Yesterday I went to Barter Books in Alnwick, Northumberland. It is a massive second hand book store set in an old railway station which also sells rare vintage books. The set of Golliwogg books above are all first editions. We spent a good forty minutes in there but after much procrastination over a 1980s packaging book and a brick of a book on type and layout, I left with nothing but a memory card of photographs. Definitely a place to go if you're ever in the North. The vintage children's books have great covers to admire.
