Angela Hill’s selection of exceptional art, design, fashion and photography books will temporarily be placed in the dramatic surroundings of St Martins Lane throughout the summer with the IDEA Books Pop-Up Shop.
From 1st June to 29th August, the store will open for a three month stint in the Front Room at St Martins Lane Hotel, housing Hill’s vast collection of one off and unique titles.
Heralded for her hand-picked selection of designer books and magazines across the field of fashion, design, photography, music and film, the store will exhibit an eclectic array of Hills’ favorites.
“I have always loved the shop space at St Martins Lane,” says Hill. “I used to visit when the hotel first opened and bought a lot from there, so it’s a perfect space for me to revisit with my very own temporary book store. St Martins Lane guests are our customers – international designers, architects, models, photographers, editors and creatives that buy my books for inspiration…it’s a great partnership.”
Previously only available in Colette and Dover St Market, visitors and hotel guests can unearth an assortment of fashion magazines sought out by Hill including Avant Mode, 19 and Ritz, inspirational craft books; Housebuilding for Children, The Canoe Book and Underground Interiors, experimental architecture of Archigram and Site, design by Alchimia and Memphis and classic photography of David Hamilton, Sarah Moon, James Wedge and Deborah Turbeville.
Open seven days a week, the store will be a must-visit destination for those at the forefront of these creative industries. Angela Hill’s IDEA Books Pop-up shop will be complimented with afternoon tea served daily from 2.30pm-5.30pm in Asia de Cuba.
