We’re delighted that the Corsham Bookshop has sold copies of Slightly Foxed for the past thirteen years and recommends us to readers each and every quarter. Therefore, it was a pleasure to learn more about life at the bookshop, as well as add to our reading list, courtesy of bookseller Janet Brakspear.

‘A wonderful introduction into the world of independent bookselling’
Heffers Bookshop in Cambridge has been a Foxed favourite for decades, before Slightly Foxed was even a notion. Members of our team have previously lived, studied and worked in Cambridge. In fact, our Editor Gail Pirkis and Publicity Manager Steph Allen worked at Heffers itself and have fond memories of their time there . . .
We’ve had a soft spot for Topping & Company, Bath since it opened in 2007 with an outstanding team of booksellers including Saber Khan and Kathleen Smith. Kathleen was a founding member of Slightly Foxed and has taken her unique blend of energy and creativity to run a vibrant series of events for Topping & Co. Kathleen also happens to be married to one of our favourite book designers and illustrators – the talented James Nunn who created many of the foxes that adorn the covers of our quarterly.
The Barnes Bookshop is one of three independent bookshops owned by Isla Dawes, with the others located in Kew and Sheen, who has worked in the book industry for twenty years.

Wenlock Books has been the beating heart of the high street in the ancient market town of Much Wenlock since 1987. Loved by locals and visitors alike, customers include regulars from South Africa, France, the USA and New Zealand, as well as UK customers from Manchester, Birmingham, London and Edinburgh. Some visit every year, some pop in two or three times a week: the bookshop has a large family! At the head of this family is shop owner and bookseller Anna Dreda, and we happily quizzed her on life at Wenlock Books.
