Any Amount of Books
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
This Charing Cross stalwart seems to have smartened up a little over the last year; fear not, the bare floorboards and wooden shelving remain, but the stock seems easier to negotiate than in times past. Specialising principally in arts and literature, Any Amount is jam-packed with decent quality books on all subjects. Prices range from £1 to £2,000 (including, amusingly, a ‘medium-rare’ section). The shop had a scoop in 2007 by acquiring the library of Angela Carter; more recently, the books of noted bon viveur Norman Douglas made their way here. Diversifying a little never hurts business either, and the shop has developed a sideline selling collections of leather bindings to interior decorators, set designers and posh drinking establishments.
