We are excited to announce a new venture in collaboration with The Art Cafe contemporary gallery in Whitby, North Yorkshire.
Book Nook will occupy a beautiful bespoke bookcase in the gallery and feature a curated selection of small press titles to bring you the very best of lesser-known and innovative literature.
Small, independent presses don’t get much attention in big book stores, yet they are busy taking creative risks, supporting challenging works, and translating world favourites into English for the first time. We think such books are a great fit for fans of contemporary art and look forward to drawing them out from the margins and into readers’ hands.
Featuring titles from:
- And Other Stories
- Clash Books
- Dead Ink Books
- Galley Beggar
- Lolli Editions
- Story Machine
- Tilted Axis Press
- Valley Press
We anticipate the launch of Book Nook in November 2022. Watch this space for updates!
In addition, all Book Nook books will be available from our new webstore.

This sounds awesome! I have given serious thought to doing something like this in my area in Virginia. My book is launching in March of 2024 and I’ll need to get a business license to sell it, so I thought I might as well sell other books too! I was thinking of approaching a local cafe and consignment shop about doing pop-up shops or a permanent installment. If you do a blog post or anything about how this all evolved, please tag me so I don’t miss it. Oh, and I hope you don’t mind but I also forwarded this news to two indie pubs that I love.
Best wishes to you and this new venture, Sarah Tollok
