Founded in 2009 by literary agents Sarah Lutyens and Felicity Rubinstein, we sell fiction and general non-fiction with special sections for children’s books, poetry and art books.
Shop Manager Claire Harris and Partnerships Manager Tara Spinks have been here from the start, with support from Children’s Buyer Caroline Eade, and Bookseller Veronica Faulks.
The emphasis at L&R is on excellence in writing and narrative across a broad range of genres. The core stock was put together by canvassing hundreds of readers – writers, publishing contacts, friends (both adults and children) about which books they would most like to find in a bookshop. Every book stocked has its place because somebody loves it and has recommended it.
As well as books, the shop stocks a small range of other necessities including our own-branded bags, as well as stationery, cards, paperweights, pictures by Hugo Guinness and Serge Seidlitz, homemade preserves.
