...where I would find inspiring art books of our trade..?
I would greatly appreciate if you could guide me somewhere - going to carry an empty bag with me to fill up with good books. :D
Whatever comic / game / movie / traditional art books are on the list, so if there's good shops where they sell all of the above, hint me there please.

Gosh! Comics opposite the British Museum - wonderful shop, not just for comics but also lots of great art books.

There's one that does comics and sci-fi off Trafalgar Square down a little side road if my memory serve me right. I'll see if I can find it again with Street View this weekend.

Forbidden Planet, in Covent Garden - has a huge downstairs section with all
your comic and art book neeeeds!
Gosh (as mentioned above)
You can try Waterstones and Folyes (on Charing Cross road) but their selection may not be as good as Forbidden Planet and Gosh!
So, when are you in London????

It's a small store and kinda hard to find, but the owner is really likeable.
The store is called Black Books and the owner Bernard Black.

Thanks you all!
I shall mark these up and go check them out.
Molly, I'm there during easter! A bit later than I thought, but then again a few days longer than originally planned - so no complaints.
