Just walking in here relieves my blood pressure, somehow. Like it's nice to know that the world still produces and consumes quality print media.
It's got an excellent range of US literary mags. I went in last week because I had stupidly ordered the wrong issue of The Believer. (Not that it wasn't great.) The staff member I spoke to knew the issue I had incorrectly bought, knew the feature article I was after wasn't in it and was able to 'best guess' (correctly) that the one I wanted hasn't arrived in the UK yet and asked if I wanted to reserve it.
SUCH a good store. Just make sure you set yourself a budget before you go in!
This is coffee-table book paradise: from fonts and photography stock books to reference books as russian prisoner's tattoos pictures. I don't usually buy anything - it's a great place to just window shop too - but if you're looking for cool gifts, I recommend it.
Make my heart go giddy up. Anything I have ever bought here as a present for someone has never failed to please. The place is full of fantastic things, things you want, things you won’t want to give away once you get them home. But be generous and give it up, after all, most things in this place have little use except in giving pleasure and isn’t that the greatest gift of all? It’s kinda pricey though so expect to part with a wee wad of cash or, if you’re strapped, cross to the other side of the street as you pass to avoid temptation and the inevitable rude letter from the bank manager when you fail to pay your credit card bill that month.
Magma is a treat for art geeks, design geeks, graphic novel geeks, pop culture geeks, and just geeks full stop. Sure, if you went to Forbidden Planet, you could get t-shirts, badges, graphic novels and action figures, but they wouldn’t have quite the same flair or edge. Plus they have just about every art and design magazine under the sun. The perfect place to find a little something for yourself or your artsy friends.
Fun fun fun! I like this shop lots! It’s full of things to look at and things to play with. Shops that are full of things to play with make me happy.
Shops that are full of beautiful Rob Ryan stuff make me even happier. Lovely pretty wonderful stuff. Of course, you’re buying expensive things, and some of it really isn’t worth the price, but if you’ve ever wondered where in London you can buy a laptop case that looks like a windows folder, this is the place.
Well worth a visit this shop with a little bit of everything design related. It majors on books, but has some great T-shirts, posters, magazines, figurines, toys, mugs etc. It’s pretty small but its got stock up to the top of a pretty high ceilinged room so there are lots of things to catch your eye.
It’s a little curio of a shop - it’s ranked in 'art galleries in London’ in Qype I see, which I think sums it up as I wouldn’t know where else to put it!
Oh its also got very cheery and helpful staff as well. Check out there website for a little look at what they do and then get yourself along there for a nosey. It’s a great place to browse even if you don’t find anything that takes your fancy.
This is a designer and artist’s haven for books, DVD, posters, magazines and t-shirts. If you’re a student this is the perfect place to start your research or just get inspired. It not only contains all up-to-date magazines but also has some of the best creative advertising books around.
The shop itself is quite small inside but the shelves go way up high and you can even get vinyl figures of certain artists characters and even story books by directors such as Tim Burton.
A place to browse and wish you could take everything home with you.
This is a really unique find. On a road off of Charing cross heading toward Seven dials is the new Magma gift shop. There has always been a shop there which has sold design books – especially Japanese comic style stuff and that’s still there, but their new shop is fab. Everything is conceptually designed and really quirky. They sell all kinds of things from funky mugs, original note books, keyfobs, wall hangings allsorts of odds and oddities but every single piece is either beautiful or comes with a great sense of humour. You’ll have to pay a visit to really see what I mean but if you are after a truly original modern gift, this is the shop for you.
