‘A heartfelt celebration of writing that has stood the test of time . . . committedly eclectic’ Gaby Wood, Telegraph

In case you haven’t yet come across it, Slightly Foxed is a rather unusual quarterly book review. Unaffected by the winds of fashion and the hype of the big publishers, the quarterly introduces its readers to some of the thousands of good books that long ago disappeared from the review pages and often from bookshop shelves. Companionable and unstuffy, it has a wide range of contributors – some well-known, some not – who all write personally and entertainingly about the books they choose. It’s not so much a review magazine as a magazine of enthusiasms. Printed in England by traditional craftsmen printers, Slightly Foxed strikes a blow for lasting quality in content and presentation.

Roo Waterhouse Shelf Portraits imageRoo Waterhouse

Roo’s ‘shelf-portraits’ celebrate the attachment that develops between people and the books they read and accumulate over the years – an inspiration that resonates powerfully with everything that Living Room Literature represents; if I were asked to pick a painting that embodied the spirit of LRL, I would choose one from Roo’s shelf series. I’m delighted to showcase examples of Roo’s work in the hallway of my home; she takes commissions so if you like what you see when you visit for a class you could commission your own personal ‘shelf-portrait.’ LRL customers are entitled to 10% off commissions and exhibited paintings.
