Published on: 18 June 2016 Author: Sophie Offord

Remember the sorry days before tote bags were well and truly the mainstream? On top of all the environmental issues, we were seriously missing out on some extra outfit style points.

Since Independent Bookshop Week is part of the Books Are My Bag campaign, we're grabbing hold of our inner geek and looking at some of our all-time favourite book totes.

Yes, that's right. They're tote bags about books. What are you waiting for?

You're going to have to be patient. Books Are My Bag have two amazing new collectors' edition totes coming out this October - the one above by award-winning designer Coralie Bickford-Smith, the other a children's bag starring Winnie-the-Pooh.
