Old & Antiquarian Books

Thousands of antiquarian books are now available in Prospero's Project – the branch of Much Ado that celebrates old and new books, publishing ventures, bookarts and all things bookish.

Many of the old books are listed on-line. You can search the collection – and purchase books on-line – using this form.

New Books

Much Ado is now located in a charming Victorian barn, in a compound that was once a builder's yard.

We offer a range of carefully-chosen books in a range of categories. Whether you are looking for a current novel, a thought-provoking philosophy book, a memoir, a children's book or something altogether different, we hope you'll enjoy browsing our selection.

Fans will find a generous selelction of books by and about the Bloomsbury Group, as well as books about Eric Ravilious, Edward Bawden, and Lee Miller - all artists we admire, with local connections. (By the way, collectors will find an extensive selection of old and out-of-print Bloomsbury Group books as well.)

Below are some current favourites, which you can see at Much Ado or order to have posted to your door . . . just click on the title or the image to read more!
