And before the snow goes two last photos I took at the Warren. Hay has its own beach by the River Wye and in summer you can swim here and barbecue and watch the swans and canoeists go by. #thisismykingdom #i❤️hay #booktown #townofbooks #usedbooks #addymanbooks #hayonwye #thewarren #bytheriver #snowbooks #lauraingallswilder #thelongwinter #johnirving #lastnightintwistedriver #riversofsnow #sledging #snowballs #snowballing

Close by the jolly fire I sit To warm my frozen bones a bit; Or with a reindeer sled, explore The colder countries round the door..... And tree and house, and hill and lake, Are frosted like a wedding-cake. From Winter-Time, A Child’s Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson. This edition illustrated with wonderful full coloured plates by H. Willebeek Le Mair (now that’s a name) was published in 1931 - this is the first edition thus. DM me for details and more of the beautiful illustrations... Bed in Summer, Where Go the Boats... I still know some of these off by heart. Robert Louis Stevenson not only told some of the best stories he also wrote poems that were just perfect for children and avoided the cloying coyness that creeps into other children’s verse during the late 19th and early 20th century. • 📔📖📔📖📔📖📔📖📔 • • I am eating a stack of pancakes with blueberries and raspberries and far too much maple syrup. The white witch has made hot chocolate again and though today’s #booksellersbreakfast is far from a healthy breakfast I think I will need it - the sun is shining and the snow is still thick and bright and I hope to be sledging all this afternoon.

Another wonderful item from the Warne stable - famous for Peter Rabbit and so much more. This book for girls was issued in 1932 and the cover is still bright. My English grandmother would have approved of this illustration plus she would have been exactly the right age to enjoy the book. She used to say blue and green should never be seen unless there’s a colour in between. I am actually wearing jeans and a green jumper today so sorry Dorothy. • 📗👖📗👖📗👖📗👖📗👖 • • • I’ve tried to match each of the cover girls to a part of the #booksellersbreakfast and still give it the appearance of a midnight feast. So we have a green smoothie, tea in a blue mug and the jam in the donut and the tarts. #hayonwye #addymanbooks #blueandgreen #greenandblue #childrensbooks #girlsschoolstories #teaandbooks #booktown #usedbooks #oldbooks #booksforbreakfast #bookshop #bookstore #greensmoothie #jollyhockeysticks We are selling this for£10 - see story later for more details Postage is £3 UK - £8 Europe 10 US and Canada. £12 for Australia/ NZ

I timed making this breakfast as a few people have asked how long it takes and occasionally I worry it is a bit of a waste of a busy bookseller’s time. So here goes: 1. Four minutes to change the Christmas baubles to matching colours. I am still using the Japanese anemone seed heads from @lowerhousegardenhay to hang them from and I keep a small box from Christmas windows past to play with under the kitchen table. 2. A minute to get spinach, butter, eggs and salmon out of the fridge and the spinach into the microwave. 3. Two minutes to slice @katesbakeryhay dark sourdough rye and put it into the toaster, light gas, put butter in the pan and put on the kettle 4. Two minutes to break eggs and beat them, add salt and pepper and put them into the pan 5. Just over a minute messing them in the pan and then off the heat - @thorneaddyman has taught me never to overcook eggs 6. Two minutes to make coffee and butter toast. 7. Four minutes to arrange spinach, egg and smoked salmon add more pepper and pour the coffee. 8. One minute out while I filmed the falling snow outside my back doorway Altogether it took about 20 minutes and now I’ve eaten it and am typing this while finishing the strong coffee. • ☕️😅🍳☕️😅🍳☕️😅🍳 The book starring in today’s #booksellersbreakfast is Nurse’s Memories by Charlotte M Yonge and a perfect round up of a year illustrated with absolutely gorgeously bright chromolithos. I don’t really enjoy stacking photos so see our story for some wintry Christmas scenes and other times of year. The book was published in 1885 and is for sale.

Another day, another #bookquilt This time we have the King Penguins I bought last night. They make a softerabd more subtle pattern then the bright and bold Britain in Pictures. I think a reversible duvet with this on one side and the BIPs on the other would be perfect. These are so pretty but their spines are very delicate and many of these volumes have missing spines. As a result they are very cheap. DM us for details and postage costs. • 📔📗📖📔📗📖📒📗📖 #addymanbooks #hayonwye #townofbooks #oldbooks #usedbooks #booktown #beautifulbooks #bookshop #bookflatlay #rowsofbooks #kingpenguins #penguinbooks

“At Last a Christmas in the West Indies” is the unlikely title to star in today’s #publishersbindingthursday #booksellersbreakfast These books are all from the colour banded shelves of our children’s room. I am eating sliced avocado (I just prefer it to smashed) on the most delicious dark sourdough rye from @katesbakeryhay Lots of black pepper and lemon juice, a few coriander leaves and some organic vine tomatoes which are as sweet as candy. All from the local deli next door which is run by Hay’s food and drink giant and guru Derek. I would like to remind locals that many of the Hay shops are open late tonight - we are serving free mulled wine and mince pies and are doing discounts for followers 20% on calendars - see yesterday’s post and 10% on all other gifts and books on purchases £10 and over from 5.30-8.00 tonight • 🥑☕️🥑☕️🥑☕️🥑☕️🥑 #greenpublishersbindingthursday #greenpublishersbinding #greenbooks #christmasbooks #addymanbooks #usedbooks #oldbooks #beautifulbooks #hayonwye #booksforbreakfast #breakfastbooks #coffeeandbooks #bookshop #booktown
Just before we closed I heard someone wrestling with the shop door. It banged open and in staggered a warmly wrapped woman struggling to support and balance two boxes of books. I quickly cleared space on the desk and then helped her put them down. The smaller box on top contained about 25 King Penguins and the large one below contained these Britain in Picture titles. I stayed open a little late to price them - they are only a few pounds each - and then shelve them. Since being part of the Bookstagram community my bookselling job has become a little more complicated then it was two years ago. I couldn’t bring myself to just take them upstairs, put them on the shelf I had cleared in the steam punk room and finish for the night. I moved the bench in the children’s room, deposited the toy box into the Sci Fi room and then laid the B.I.Ps out like a patchwork quilt. I know @mistyangelofsky who collects them would have done this better but I was getting hungry. I want to start moving them around with my finger like a virtual flat Rubix cube or those tile puzzles to try and get a better result. Now that would be a game booklovers would enjoy. I do also think this would make an interesting duvet cover. Tomorrow I may do the same with the King Penguins. These book series always look magical laid out like this. The King Penguins are more patterned and muted so look a bit like wallpaper rather then patchwork. • 📕📘📗📔📒📕📙📘📗 This series which covered an extraordinary breadth of subjects started in the 1940s towards the last part of the war and were rather patriotic in flavour. Authors such as Orwell, Greene, Sackville-West, Elizabeth Bowen and John Betjeman contributed titles. Designers and artists such as Enid Marx also produced titles The format was almost identical with 8 coloured plates, other illustrations in black and white and all could be read and digested in one evening. They are an affordable series to collect. Even the Orwell title isn’t horrendously expensive and they don’t take up too much shelf space. Most of them are priced between £1 and £5 a piece. #addymanbooks #hayonwye #usedbooks #britaininpictures #bookshop #usedbookstore #oldbooks #booktown

A #tinytuesday post featuring the popular Polly Miller doll and the Southey set that I posted yesterday (but the right way around!) I have also added some of my miniature books. I had an usual and very late breakfast of sliced persimmon, a fig and a mince pie. Work started too quickly to manage my #booksellersbreakfast at anything like a normal time. I was far too hungry and clumsy to fill the little cup with coffee but Polly Miller did get some mince pie. #booksforbreakfast #breakfastbooks #miniaturebooks #leatherbooks #oldbooks #usedbooks #bookshop #booktown #townofbooks #usedbookstore #addymanbooks #hayonwye #mincepiesandbooks #coffeeandbooks

Guten Abend 🙆🏻💘📚 Heute war ein ziemlich anstehender Tag. Wir hatten Sport in nach der Schule war ich noch bei jemandem zu Besuch. Bin auch erst seit 20 Minuten wieder zu Hause 😅 Nichtsdestotrotz muss ich jetzt noch etwas für die Schule machen🤓 Vielleicht lese ich auch noch etwas, bevor ich ins Bett falle 🛌💘 • #silberreihe #silber #kerstingier #Winter #kugeln #mustread #weihnachtsdeko #weihnachten #weihnachtskugel #bücherjunkie #büchersindtoll #bookstagram #bookinstagram #booklove #books #book #buchliebe #buchverrückt #bücherliebhaber #bücherjunkie #bücherwelt #booktown #instabook #bookblogger #lights #winterbooks
James Robertson should be celebrated across the country for the voice he gives Scotland and celebrated across the world for his storytelling. He has an extraordinary ability to present characters in virtually four dimensions when many modern writers can hardly manage more than two. Allan Massie says “there is a sort of Orwellian decency about his writing..” which I agree with. I read this book with the ease and enjoyment that a well written thriller or detective novel provides but finished it a little changed; I thought more about the effect of religion, I felt enriched by the insights into Scottish history, politics and culture and I might even attempt to read Walter Scott one of these days... Robertson’s characters will stay in my mind longer than many of the real people I meet and the story still twists and turns delightfully through my head. • ☕️📖☕️📖☕️📖☕️📖☕️📖☕️ It’s a bit of a left over breakfast today. A pink smoothie with the last of the raspberries I froze - I have ordered more from our Londis - a lone star mince pie from the weekend - I have bought five more, also from Londis - and the last of the local grapes. I made the coffee strong as it is Monday and I was up until after 1.00pm watching Greenleaf, a Netflix series which also dissects a religious community. I am finding this compulsive viewing too. #booksellersbreakfast #hayonwye #addymanbooks #bookshop #booktown #townofbooks #jamesrobertson #thetestamentofgideonmack #mincepieseason #pinksmoothie #scottishliterature #penguinbooks #usedbooks #coffeeandbooks #booksforbreakfast #breakfastbooks
Pottery in New Zealand: Commercial & Collectable by Gail Lambert. Hardcover book published by Heinemann 1985, 167 pages with black and white and colour photographs. Anyone with an interest in pioneering skills and their development into a modern creative industry will find this book a fascinating story of endeavour. Readers with a collector’s interest in early ceramics — and there is a growing collectors’ market for early New Zealand wares — will find this an invaluable resource for identifying their finds, be they pickle jars, teapots or ducks flying up a wall. There are few households in New Zealand today which do not boast in the kitchen or living room some small example of the wares of an earlier era in the history of ceramics in this country. Yet how many know of the hundred years or more of endeavour by which pioneer craftsmen, isolated from the familiar materials and markets of their homeland, struggled to establish what is today a major manufacturing industry? $24.50 + postage #hgnew #bookstagram #instabook #rarebooks #bookporn #bookseller #vintagebooks #oldbooks #antiquarianbooks #booklover #books #rarebooks #rarebook #Clunes #Clunesvictoria #booktown #Ballarat #Daylesford #NewZealand #NZ #NZceramics #ceramics #pottery #NZcollectibles #NZpottery

A stack of vellum books, a stack of pancakes and a book about books. I have a passion for vellum, a passion for pancakes and, as Kinsella said in the Irish Times, Fadiman’s Ex Libris is “A perfect book for anyone who is passionate about books” • 📕📖📕📖📕📖📕📖📕📖📕 Ex Libris was recommended to me by the lovely @beth.bonini and I did enjoy it though I am aware that the intellectual snobbery of the Fadiman family could overwhelm a British audience though it is related with a joyful honesty and self awareness. Books like this make me realise there are interesting differences between Americans and British. I am a dual National but I was brought up in the UK where being an intellectual is generally something to be played down whatever your background is. • ☕️🥞☕️🥞☕️🥞☕️🥞☕️🥞☕️ The fluffy American pancakes provide a sponge for maple syrup and are very good when topped with my latest favourite breakfast food - the Greek set yoghurt from @rachelsorganic (a healthy version of clotted cream) and frozen berries. #booksellersbreakfast #hayonwye #addymanbooks #booktown #bookshop #townofbooks #booksonbooks #annefadiman #exlibris #vellum #sundaybrunch #pancakes #pancakesunday #maplesyrup #coffeeandbooks #usedbooks #usedbookstore #beautifulbooks

I like the colours you see through the doorways of our shop. I heard two customers talking and one of them said, “It’s like being in a house of books.” I cannot tell you how lovely it is when people say good things about our shops. It warms our hearts and makes us feel we are doing our job properly. In these times, when you can get anything you want or think you need with a bit of typing, shops like ours have to put the magic back into book buying. Here is where the book chooses you, here is where you find an author you have never heard of before, here is the scent of old books and a small voyage of discovery as you walk around a corner and find yet another room full of books. This room is a cabinet of curiosities really. Originally a bathroom when we moved in over 30 years ago - hence the Victorian patterned glass - then our stock room and eventually the steam punk room. It is not much bigger than a walk-in wardrobe and just as dark but we do sell quite a lot from it. I loved be the blue of the twilight sky through the window. #addymanbooks #hayonwye #townofbooks #booktown #usedbooks #usedbookstore #oldbooks #bookshop #bookstore #secondhandbooks #doorwaytoheaven #doorways #windowsofinstagram #steampunk #steampunkroom #houseofbooks
A piece of Pop Art using two @penguinukbooks Janet Evanovich editions from our #murderandmayhem shop and some dayglo card. I listen to her Sugar Plum title when I am preparing some of the food on Christmas Eve ad she always makes me laugh. Later on that day my daughter and I often watch Little Women as we wrap last minute presents and do even more last minute food. As I get older these family rituals become more and more fun and something I look forward to. Now it is December I think we can all start to get excited. #andywarhol #opart #popart #janetevanovich #oneforthemoney #twoforthedough #pinkandgreen #dayglow #dayglo #addymanbooks #hayonwye #bookshop #townofbooks #booktown #usedbooks #usedbookstore

If we didn’t have oceans between us, I’d suggest we have customers in common... what is it about bookshops that attracts the oddballs? I’ve been talking about writing just such a diary for years but I really don’t need to now! (But just quietly I am. Oh, I so am....) #diary #bookseller #booksellerslife #wigtown #thebookshop #shaunbythell #scotland #booktown #secondhandbooks #books #bookshops #read #laugh #cry #thediaryofabookseller #blarneybooksandart #portfairy
POSTALES DE MUSEO Aquí tenemos la nueva incorporación a nuestra colección #nosencantarecibirpostales, de un país de la UE (por poco tiempo) que no teníamos: Reino Unido. Nos la envió nuestro querido Juan del Amo desde un lugar muy peculiar: el Museo Soane, de Londres. Tal como nos las describe es «una casa laberíntica totalmente abarrotada de antigüedades» hasta el punto de resultar «propia de una pesadilla dantesca». Y es que al parecer, tal como recoge la socorrida Wikipedia, esta vivienda-estudio londinense convertida en museo, que perteneció al arquitecto neoclásico Sir John Soane (Goring-On-Thames, 10 de septiembre de 1753-Londres, 20 de enero de 1837) es citada con frecuencia «por su estética recargada y casi tétrica, con una superposición de elementos escultóricos que recuerda a los grabados de Piranesi. De acuerdo a su gusto ecléctico y abigarrado, Soane acumuló copias en yeso de múltiples relieves y esculturas de la Antigüedad, y las adosó a las paredes formando chocantes puzzles». La postal es una fotografía del sarcófago de alabastro de Seti I, que fue descubierto en Egipto por Giovanni Battista Belzoni en 1817, quien intentó venderlo al Museo Británico. Tras su negativa, Soane lo compró por 2.000 libras esterlinas en 1824, convirtiéndose en una de las joyas del museo. El sarcófago llegó a Londres en 1825 y se ubicó en el sótano del museo, en lo que Soane llamaba la «Cámara sepulcral». Después de que se agregara a la colección tuvo lugar una fiesta de tres días para celebrar el acontecimiento. Lo que aprendemos y descubrimos de la mano de los viajeros de Primera... Fantástica colección de recuerdos y experiencias viajeras sin salir de #Urueña #villadellibro #booktown #postcard
