The Living Bookshelf

Nothing goes together like a cup of tea and a good book.


At the Teatulia tea bar in Covent Garden, one wall is given over to a hand-picked selection of books, to buy or simply to browse while you sip.


Our friend Tilda Swinton, the Oscar-winning actress, came up with the idea of the Living Bookshelf, where our favourite artists could choose their 10 favourite titles.


So far our contributors have included Jon Hamm, Elizabeth Day, Monica Ali, Stephen Fry, Lawrence Osborne, Lionel Shriver and Howard Jacobson, and we are adding new ones all the time.
