U.K. publisher Nobrow has announced it will close its London store after three and a half years to better concentrate on publishing and to expand its office space.
"Our desire is to focus on our core business, developing and producing the best content in visual publishing," reads a statement on the Nobrow website. "With the increasing growth of our team, we have no choice but to expand the office space and, unfortunately, this is at the expense of the Nobrow Shop. Nobrow UK will still reside in the same historic premises, but with a significantly larger team – and our books will still be available everywhere that good books are sold."
Although the brick-and-mortar shop, located at 62 Great Eastern St., will close on July 18, the publisher plans to launch an expanded online store in September.
