A Camberwell mainstay offering the best in new and second-hand art and design books.
Regarded as one of Camberwell's longest-running shops, Sainsburys Books has been a constant presence in the area for the last 30 years. While owner John Sainsbury originally set up shop at the famous Camberwell Market so that he could sell on some books from his sprawling collection, he soon realised that his passion for all things paperback would better serve fellow readers if he opened up his own shopfront. While Sainsbury has a keen eye for secondhand books that span art, design, photography and history, the latest novels creating a buzz among voracious readers are also available.
