A chuckle echoed around Book and Kitchen today as we looked at our new arrivals. A collection of pen and watercolour political cartoons by young local artist, Frances Reed. Themes range from papal indiscretions to political bug bears. Each one is clever, beautifully executed and above all unique.

Frances graduated from The Ruskin School of Fine Art at Oxford and is building her artistic career. She is rapidly gaining recognition and you can spot her beautiful illustration work on the Notting Hill Post website (

Book and Kitchen predict great things and starting at £185 (including frames), these little works of art, signed by Frances, are a great opportunity to get your hands on a ‘one off’ by an up and coming artist.

A useful reminder that Book and Kitchen doesn’t only cater for bodily and literary appetites but also offers a perfect gift shopping opportunity.    Next time you’re in (and looking for a little something), spare some time to rummage along the shelves and look on the walls – there is treasure to be found.
