It’s one of the most recognizable posters in the world, an internet meme reinvented thousands of times over and yet do any of us actually know the story behind it?

Wow! How much do you want to visit Barter’s books and sit in the old tea rooms next to the fire with an old book? It looks like an Eden of nostalgic treasures.
