About Us

Collinge & Clark was founded in 1989 and is situated between Russell Square Tube station and the British Library. Originally a partnership between Michael Collinge and Oliver Clark, the former retired in 2005. The shop has a medium-sized stock, ground-floor and basement, and specialises in Private Press books, Typography and the art of the book since William Morris. One large catalogue is issued a year and various occasional lists. Shop opening hours are 11.00 to 6.30 weekdays. We also attract many visitors for the shop frontage being used in the cult television series 'Black Books'.
