Although Shalimar is primarily a bookshop, we have, through Soma, retained a section on Indian folk craft and Indian art. At present we have an exhibition of selected paintings at the Rustique Literary Cafe in Tufnell Park.
This cafe is a favourite for the local community – as well as regular exhibitions of art, there are also shelves of books – for sale or just for reading over your coffee. When the sun shines, the back garden is a delight.
Do visit, and if you can’t make it you can see a wide selection at our shop in Kennington – including some beautiful original Gond art paintings.
