Warm wishes to you all from a frosty London, where we’re anticipating a welcome delivery of new spring publications – and spring itself – while also scaling the bookshelves for old favourites to enjoy in moments of calm.
Our popular Slightly Foxed Paperbacks are perfect for slotting into a coat pocket or bag, and make charming presents. Delightful to look at, pocket-sized and elegantly produced on good cream paper, complete with French flaps, these reissues give you a chance to acquire some of the original hardbacks you may have missed.
Meet Edward Ardizzone’s eccentric family friends and cheerful bachelor uncles, brought to life in words and pictures in The Young Ardizzone, and the cast of Dickensian characters who inhabit the loud and lively London of V. S. Pritchett’s A Cab at the Door. View early twentieth-century Egypt through a child’s eye in Priscilla Napier’s A Late Beginner and travel to China in the 1970s with Frances Wood in the affecting and hilarious Hand-grenade Practice in Peking. These classic memoirs are wonderful reads – all of them absorbing and highly individual.
We’re providing some special offers when buying multiples of these perfectly pocketable paperbacks, so whether you’re in need of a good book or a present for someone you’re fond of, do seize the chance to stock up now.
With best wishes, as ever, from the SF office staff
Jennie, Anna, Hattie & Jess
