Welcome to Ripping Yarns Books


We are a secondhand bookshop in North London, formerly of 355 Archway Road, specialising in collectable children's and illustrated books.

We have boys' and girls' school and adventure stories, puffins, annuals, British comics, out-of-print modern children's fiction and a large number of 19th century moral tales. We also have a large collection of poetry and plays, adult fiction, sci-fi, general fiction and books of all kinds.

We sell online, mainly via Abe Books and Biblio, but we are also happy to deal with customers directly. Please email us -
