South Kensington, London

This elegant, boutique hotel in the heart of south Kensington is a small luxury hotel, perfect for tourists wanting to be close to nearby museums, a base from which all of London can be reached. They wanted us to source the books for the meeting rooms and smaller bundles for the suites.

We pulled together an extensive collection on a range of different topics, such as adventure, music, perspective, fashion and then added books that articulated London as a city, to provide that sense of place. We included illustrated coffee table books on engaging and quintessentially British topics, including ‘Building London: The Making of a Modern Metropolis,’ and ‘Kate Moss by Mario Testino.’ We also added a children’s section full of literary classics aimed at kids from authors such as Philip Pullman and Roahl Dahl.
