The Last Bookshop imagines a future where physical books have died out.
One day, a small boy’s holographic entertainment fails, so he heads out to explore the streets of abandoned shops outside. Down a forgotten alley he discovers the last ever bookshop. And inside, an ancient shopkeeper has been waiting over 25 years for a customer…
Produced by The Bakery in the South-East of England, filming took place in 2011, with post-production completed in 2012. The music was composed by Owen Hewson and performed by Arlet.
Veteran actor Alfred Hoffman stars alongside youthful co-star Joe Holgate.
It is written by Richard Dadd, who also co-directs alongside Dan Fryer.
We love bookshops. But we saw that many are going through tough times.
We wanted to contribute to the cultural debate with our own celebration in support of these glorious independents and their shelves of treasures. So with the help of some remarkable independent bookshops, and a lot of talented friends, we have been able to make our idea for The Last Bookshop into a reality. We hope you enjoy this film and share it with your friends
Mungkin di Indonesia belum banyak isu ditutupnya toko buku – toko buku karena paperbook belum dikalahkan oleh ebook. Yap, belum dikalahkan, masih ada kans paperbook akan ditenggelamkan oleh ebook. Well, sekarang aja lebih terkenal smartphone daripada smart people joke 😐
Its a Nightmare, a common nightmare for a bookish.
But, we can prevent it. We might reading ebook but, paperbook, they deserved to be judged by their cover. Their pretty appeareance should coloring our house, our shelves and bring the joy by the their gorgeous outlook. Isn’t it sooth our mood just by looking the arrangement of the book’s spine on our bookshelves?
I might not have too many books on my shelf, i’m a picky one. Even that was a reason, i picked some books to be mine because i fall for them, a feeling like i long for that books. Like, i should have this book but maybe not for some others. And it should be a paperbook that i can touch every time i feel like touching it.
These reason are the reasons i’ve been agreeing when i read ‘Books that still have covers should expect to be judged by them’
So, i’ll never stop buying books.
