Stories live on...
Tucked away among the steep streets of Looe, a small fishing village in Cornwall, you’ll find the Old Hall Bookshop. Spread over two floors of a converted 19th century chapel, it’s a treasure trove of pre-loved books, maps and rare editions.
We spent the day in this magical place for our latest shoot, we even bought a few books to take home.
The owners Jo and her husband Sam live either side of this cosy library, they’re a rare breed of custodian who care for the books which are stacked floor to ceiling on ancient bookshelves. Comfy sofas dot the room for anyone to sink into and enjoy a good read.
Being a custodian means looking after something for the next generation, and there’s no doubt Jo and Sam will have played a role in hundreds of stories, helping to reframe other people’s lives through their passion.
Thanks Jo & Sam - we had a blast.
