Book of the week is John Londei Shutting up Shop

Shot over a 15-year period beginning in the early 1970s, this is a tribute to an era that has all but disappeared – the traditional small shops that feature have now almost all gone. In 2004 Londei began the task of updating what had become of the shopkeepers and shops he’d photographed so long ago.
