Ditch the Kindle and stock up on life’s most underrated little luxury – the book. Even if you just want to look at the pretty pictures, this store conceived by Marc Jacobs (bookMARC, see) will get even the least bookish turning pages.

Situated below the Marc by Marc Jacobs space in Mayfair, the concept’s not new (it’s been around the States for a while), but it’s a welcome addition to his other boutiques which really promote a lifestyle as much as a brand – otherwise what is your excuse for that fluoro iPad cover, eh?

So, gussy up that coffee table and make your lounge literate with Marc’s handpicked choices. It’s mostly beautiful fashion tomes and Rizzoli publications, with rarities like signed copies and limited editions also making the shelves. In addition, there’s plenty of highly giftable MJ-branded goodies for any budget and occasion, including stationary, bags, and yes, iPad covers.
