    Issue 4: London

    The most charming outpost of this London mini-chain is also its original—the first portion of the Marylebone shop opened in 1912. With its pleasant skylights, incredible selection—the travel section in particular is renowned nationwide, if not worldwide—and general panache, Daunt is worth swinging by even if you’re not in the neighborhood. (This is a literary town, after all!)
