The independent bookstore and publisher is located in the heart of Bath, a city sacred to those passionate about literature and classic British culture.
Persephone publishes often-overlooked books by predominantly female authors. Many stories are based in times of war. Each book is covered with a gray cover, but each has its own beginning, middle and end. Not only this, but each book also has its own pattern inside the cover, paired with a complementary bookmark in this pattern.
I have never seen a place so beautifully decorated for its purpose. It’s like stepping into a time machine and going back 70 years. Nice staff to follow your business on a beautiful dial phone. Vintage prints hang on the walls, and colorful, soothing patterns surround bookmarks, fabrics, and sunflower-filled vase locations.
recommended by my aunt No.53-Lady Rose and Mrs. Memary Ruby Ferguson tells the story of a woman who finds a lover on a park bench. This book has beautiful illustrations that make Persephone stand out from many popular publishers.
Persephone Books is a must-visit for anyone with a passion for reading and literature, and anyone who believes they were born in the wrong generation.
