Breakfast with Everyman's Library

I know that for some people it might be quite strange reason to move abroad, but it was actually my passion for beautiful editions that brought me to London. Well, of course it wasn't the only reason for that but certainly one of those. You can't find such beautiful books in Czechia, and it can be really difficult to buy them online since some were designed just to be sell in local bookshops. So yes, I came to London because of that. I've just dreamed about visiting bookshops and browsing through shelves filled with these beautifully bound books. And my dream came true eventually. I was just having my lunch break in the back room of our bookshop a couple of weeks ago when I received an invitation for breakfast with Everyman's Library at Heal's. I was so surprised and excited that I wasn't able to response straight away. I mean, there's so many original and inspirational people in London and yet they decided to invite me. I just couldn't believe it. And I am so glad I've had an opportunity to accept because it was just splendid. The place, the food, the company of people, and of course the books. Everything was just amazing. And I feel extremely grateful that I could be part of it...

  3. SO glad to find your blog. I was familiar only with the Insta account. It is amazing, the breakfast at Everyman's. Your pictures are so stunning. And yes, I completely understand when you say the bookshops in London lured you into the city. I often feel the same. Glad you got to be part of the gathering by Everymans
