Archived: Hedleys Books X Karen Walker pop up shop


Books are coming to Britomart in November and December, with Hedleys Books and Karen Walker teaming up to present a unique concept book store in Tyler Street.

A family-run business based in Masterton, Hedleys is also a boutique publisher, and will be using the Britomart pop-up for the global release of the final 600 copies of the limited-edition book Blinds & Shutters by Michael Cooper, published by Genesis Publications Ltd. (UK) and Hedleys Books.

The pop-up space is on the ground floor of the Seafarers Building and will be tailor-made for Christmas shoppers,featuring a curated selection of beautiful books and excellent reading for the summer period. Hedleys Books’ own forays into publishing are always special, none more so than the limited-edition Blinds & Shutters being showcased during the month of November in the pop-up, in both book and print form (as well as in a small exhibition in the Atrium on Takutai).

December will also see the pop-up’s offering extend to a wider story of 100 titles curated by David Hedley and Karen Walker, with genres reaching across contemporary and classic fiction, memoir, non-fiction, art, design and childrens. 

Park for $2 per hour at the Downtown car park to a maximum of $15 on evenings and weekends. Find out more
