S the history and development of each community and offers practical travel advice Many Book Towns have emerged in areas of marked attraction such as Ureña in Spain or Fjaerland in Norway where bookshops have been set up in buildings including former ferry wait. Book Towns does exactly what it says on the cover it takes you around the world to visit various book towns giving each one around 4 pages in the book which contains a description of the towns themselves along with interesting titbits of information and stunning photography This is a true ‘coffee table’ book for me Literally a fascinating non fiction book that can be left on the coffee table and picked up and perused for a few minutes with a cuppa each time You don’t lose your place or feel overwhelmed with information and it’s an absolute joy to read A beautifully presented book it contains information on 45 book towns around the world from Australia to France to South Africa to France again there’s a lot of book towns in France and of course I skipped right to Wigtown in Scotland before going back to start at the beginning Each of the entries is interesting to read and it really comes across that the author has thoroughly researched each of them with information on how or why the town became a book town what bookshops are in it including a little bit of background on some of them and also including other ‘book’ related businesses that have taken root in the town It also includes information on book festivals that are either held in the town or nearby and the photography that accompanies each of the entries is stunning This is book porn at its best I loved looking at all the different arrangements in the towns and the amazing spaces that books are being sold from and each entry also includes a little ‘ information’ box that often gives the website address for the town or festival and opening hours in some casesA beautifully bound and presented book that made me want to pack the family into a camper van to go and tour all the book towns of the world I mean what could be better
