For the love of books

Bibliotherapy: a concept that is crucial to the success of independent bookshop Mr B’s Emporium in Bath. Run by Nic Bottomley, who changed jobs in the pursuit of a life revolving entirely around books, this shop depends upon the interaction between his staff and customers and a personal passion for literature. Celebrating the theatre of a book recommendation, the shop is a story in itself and far removed from the solitary pursuit of reading.
