Books & Ink Bookshop

Run by proprietor Samantha Barnes, Books & Ink is a traditional independent bookshop situated in the market town of Banbury, just on the edge of the Cotswolds.

We stock over 25,000 books – new and old, antiquarian, second-hand, brand new, remaindered (publisher’s end of line stocks). We price check our stock regularly and you’ll find our prices very competitive. If you’re looking for a book, and we don’t have it in stock, we are more than happy to order it in for you, either brand new if it’s still in print, or through an out-of-print no obligation booksearch. Being booklovers ourselves we know how important it is to find the right book and we will do everything we can to help you.

Approximately a third of our stock is currently available online – to view or purchase through our website. If you are looking for a book and don’t see it here, please get in touch – we may still have a copy in our shop. Due to the rate of turnover, much of our new stock is available in store only – do email us if you are looking for a particular title.
