Literally: The English Bookseller Captured

The series Literally by UK photographer Steve Kenward takes him inside the bookshops of England to capture the bookseller in their lair.

He says of the project:

Independent bookshops are great places to spend time in. These portraits are some of the lovely people who can help you find something special.
You really can’t beat the smell of fresh ink in a new hardback or the excitement on discovering a copy of that out of print classic.
So next time you are passing a bookshop, pop in.
You might be surprised what you find.

I am glad he didn’t call the project Endangered Species!

But seriously, like Kenward says, “next time you are passing a bookshop, pop in.
You might be surprised what you find.”
