A wonderfully diverse and fascinating selection of books mostly about nature, all about story.
At Elementum we bring together a wide variety of writing on memoir and poetry, folklore and fiction, science and art, ecology and travel. We hope our selection of books will encourage you to read more widely and foster a sense of wonder. We also sell original art, fine art prints, ceramics, and gorgeous cards and paper products.
Run by photographer Jay Armstrong and supported by the Useless Butlers (Dot the whippet & Nessa the labrador), Elementum is located in the Abbey town of Sherborne in Dorset but our community reaches across the world through our sister publication Elementum Journal.
Although we're mostly about nature, Jay's also created a wildcard list that will be updated regularly – What a Bookseller Reads on Her Day Off Think a completely different change of pace, a guilty pleasure, a classic you've always meant to get your teeth into, or a Sunday afternoon don't-disturb-me tome of a book. Bliss!
We're closed until December but a warm welcome awaits in our Facebook Group where we're also holding our 'getting back on our feet again' sale. And please consider signing up to our newsletter for updates and offers.
Thank you so much for your support at this time – it means a great deal.
