Photo location - booked!

I've just come back from George Bayntun, a family-run bookshop and bindery in Bath, where I'm going to do my next Anusha photo shoot. Little inside the shop has changed since 1938.

Downstairs, in the amazing Victorian bindery, a small team binds books entirely by hand (apparently, there are over 100 stages in this process). Lovely Annie showed me round the building today, giving me a chance to see the huge collection of hand tools and blocks (they have over 15,000 - some dating back to the eighteenth century), rolls of colourful goat and calf skins, and gorgeous hand-marbled papers.

What a treat for a wet Wednesday morning!
