Books & Ink Bookshop
Forget the internet and impersonal online book browsing; take a few minutes out of your day to relax and enjoy the hunt for a good read.
Our independent bookshop is spread over two floors housing over 25,000 titles, leaving you spoilt for choice in our book-lovers oasis of calm in the heart of Banbury’s Old Town.
We stock practically everything, covering virtually every subject you care to mention. From shiny new paperbacks, hardbacks, leather bound tomes and bestsellers to old and positively antique editions, you name it, we’ve got it. In the unusual circumstances of not having the book you’re looking for, just tell us what it is and we’ll find it for you – nothing is too much trouble. Plus, a next day ordering service is available for most new titles.
We’re not just about books
Although that’s our main love, we also stock quirky literary-related gift ideas.
There is something for everyone. Oh, and did we mention we’re also members of the Booksellers Association and stockists of National Book Tokens?

“An independent bookshop; the shop is a veritable tardis, with two floors and over 25,000 books on hand, and a separate fine art shop and art workshops on the premises too. You’ll find that our passion for the written word takes over in the shop.
All sorts of books are allowed onto the shelves – you’ll find almost all subjects and definitely all types – old, very old, positively antique, shiny new, hardbacks, paperbacks, leather bindings, bestsellers, really weird things you thought could never have been published; you name it, you’ll find it here. If we don’t have it, and you don’t have the time, then let us find it for you – nothing is too much trouble.” – Sam Barnes, owner.
Books and Ink are a stockists of National Book Tokens and a member of the Booksellers Association & the PBFA – Antiquarian, Old & New Books
And if there’s anything you can’t find be sure to ask, with most publications able to be sourced within a few days.
