What: Magma books is a small, clever space nicely filled with books, magazines, cards and interesting products. The walls are lined with books from independent publications – covering everything from fashion, art, graphic design, film and even colouring books. Handmade printed totes and prints hang from the wall and there are lots of delightful greeting cards by the front door and along the till. Their staff encourage you to browse. You could spend a whole hour in there just flicking through the books. They also sell a range of home goods, toys for grown-ups and other unusual goodies.
