In a new segment beginning today, we will be looking at independent bookshops from around the country, focusing on a particular shop each month. Our bookshop of the month for August is Picture Book in Leek, a haven for lovers of local history, wildlife and the great outdoors.
For those looking to explore the countryside surrounding the small market town of Leek on the edge of the Peak district, Picture Book is a must-stop shop. Specialising in local history and wildlife books, Picture Book also has a great selection of bestsellers and children’s books, perfect for a trip out to the country. For a more active visit to the Staffordshire region, Picture Book also stocks books on local walks, climbing spots, railway and military sights, maps and local architecture books, such as Yale’s Pevsner Architectural Guides.
Picture Book has been trading as an independent bookshop for 28 years and is situated right in the centre of Leek.
