COMING SOON TO BLENHEIM PLACE

Meet Hugh Topping, the person in charge of overseeing the conversion of a Category A-listed Swiss cheese at Blenheim Place into Edinburgh’s newest bookshop. 

The family-run firm of Topping & Company Booksellers was founded in 2002. 

It already had branches in Bath, Ely, and St Andrews, and had been looking for appropriate premises in Edinburgh for some time, when the chance came up last year to lease Nos 2–3A Blenheim Place. 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR QUIRKY QWERTY LOCAL BUSINESS

Typewronger Books – the typewriter repair service, micro-bookshop, events space, and now independent publisher – is one year old today. 

Spurtle congratulated proprietor and human dynamo Tom Hodges outside the Croall Place police box this afternoon, where he had been entertaining well-wishers with fizz, unusual reading and general bonhomie since 11am and will continue until 6pm.
