We love a slow mooch around a museum shop, but usually only when we have been to a particular exhibition.
This shouldn’t be the case and we should treat them as actual shops, considering the majority of our museums and galleries are free. Also take advantage of the online museum shops, especially if your looking for books.
A good design book can not only give informative text and pictures, but they usually always look nice – something you want to have out on display.
We had a look at the Design Museum website and found a great selection of books for interiors lovers. Use the menu to navigate the particular topic like Product Design or Architecture and find some inspiring coffee table books to dip into at any time.
Another great museum shop for books is the Barbican with fascinating reads including titles exploring concrete architecture and suburbia life.
So next time you are looking for a gift or an inspiring read for yourself, head to a museum shop, you won’t be disappointed.
