Find a Forgotten ClassicPersephone Books is absolutely one of a kind. It's both a bookshop and a publisher, run by Nicola Beauman, a brilliant woman who wanted to reclaim neglected works by women authors. So she set out to uncover great books that had fallen out of print — and she republished them. This shop is full of her beautifully bound, elegantly designed volumes (they all have a recognizable grey cover), and not only will they open your eyes to much overlooked writing by women you might not have heard of, they make the most beautiful gifts, too.
