A pop-up bookshop selling works by four independent Sheffield publishers has set up shop in the Moor Market for two weeks.

The Sheffield Independent Publishers’ (SHIP) pop-up bookshop is open for business, occupying four stalls, one for each publisher taking part, from 1 December to 14 December.

Published work from And Other Stories, Longbarrow Press, The Poetry Business and Vertebrate Publishing will be sold at the pop-up with the aim to support Sheffield’s independent publishers. 

“It’s good to support each other, especially at this really important time.

“Come down, pick up a book, and have some tea and cake” said Lorna Brogan from Vertebrate Publishing.

The publishers taking part in the event will be selling a variety of genres including poetry, fiction and outdoor guides. 

Stefan Tobler from And Other Stories said: “It’s fun for [the publishers] but also it’s just a really nice chance for people to see what’s being published here in Sheffield.”

One particular book was spoken about with excitement by the publishers.

“Beastmaking” by Ned Feehally, published by Vertebrate Publishing, is a book dedicated to training and climbing and currently sits as their best selling book. 

Mr Tobler added: “This is just a nice chance for people to understand what we’re doing and see the breadth of the work we do.”

The pop-up bookshop is located inside the Moor Market.

With the pop-up shop spreading over four tables, overflowing with various titles, there is a real mixture of books for everybody to enjoy. 

The pop-up shop, which can be found in the Moor Market opposite Sallie’s snack bar, is open Monday to Saturday 8.30am to 5pm and will run until 14 December.
