01. The Book Monger

A short film
about the shop...


The Book Monger from The Keep.


02. The Mural

Work has now been completed on a painting of a 'trompe l'oeil window' featuring Patrick's much-missed former dog Leo and his current companion and everyone's best friend Rosa. It has been painted by local artist Wendy Coyne. The original is now on show at the back of the shop and a copy - the trompe l'oeil window - is in place on the wall outside the shop... awaiting removal of that scaffolding!
