Having always shared a passion for books, Joe and Jane Thubron started selling at St Martin in the Fields during weekends for 5 years prior to establishing Copperfield's. This experience offered invaluable knowledge of the book trade and heightened our desire to own a shop.
After considerable research, Wimbledon was thought to be the ideal location.
We share a strong academic background within the fields of history, social anthropology, geography and social work. Colleagues connected with Copperfield's offer additional specialist knowledge and advice within the fields of philosophy, contemporary literature and children's books. We believe that this bedrock of knowledge within a constantly evolving and changing literary environment, is our unique strength.
