Pentreath & Hall turned 10 in November 2018 and in celebration we published a book: The Pentreath & Hall Alphabet. Cataloguing our many inspirations in a rich, visual anthology, this compendium of objects, people, paintings, places and ideas gives readers a satisfying insight into our hearts and minds. A love letter of sorts to the tiny corner of Bloomsbury where it all began; our lighthearted, considered notes impart our thoughts, motivations and memories to reveal the bonds we share and the lessons we have learned in life and shop-keeping.
Ben says “We’ve never had a manifesto, because to write down our belief system seems too rigid and organized for our way of thinking. But in compiling our alphabet of things we love, we have got as close as we ever will to unravelling the tapestry – all those strands – that make us tick in this messy, complicated, rich, happy life.”
Over 200 pages of inspiration, with a foreword by Bible of British Taste’s Ruth Guilding. Proudly printed in Dorset, England.
