We're an independent gallery bookshop based in Machynlleth, mid Wales. It's our blend of bookshop, selling a carefully selected collection of reads and pick-up-and-flick-through books – and gallery space to inspire you while you're browsing. We host events too, book readings, author talks, photography and art openings.

We specialise in photography books. Our stock covers new and out of print monographs, histories, genres, theory and classic technical books and we're always updating our stock with new titles.

Some of our current favourites


We have gathered together the largest collection of books for sale on photography, new and used, in Wales (or should we say 'probably'), thought it's still a little smaller than those held by The Photographers' Gallery, Foyles Bookshop and Tate Modern. Many of our books are either monographs by, or about individual photographers, histories, or books on a single subject – along with some more technical manuals.

We try to concentrate on European, particularly British, photography because there has been so much published on American photography. This is a fascinating time for photography, with so many people now taking photographs and wanting to know more, and for photography publishing, which is trying to keep up with the increased interest, particularly in street photography. Because of the high production values of illustrated photography books, they can be expensive, but our stock of nearly-new books are often at significantly lower prices that make them more accessible to our customers.

If you're interested in a particular subject or photographer, please do get in touch and we'll do our best to find it for you. Don't forget we offer our free book ordering and sourcing service.
