Brixton-based filmmakers have captured the essence of one of a much-loved secondhand book shop on Coldharbour Lane.
The short documentary tells the story of Patrick Kelly, who opened Bookmongers 20 years ago. It was put together by The Keep, a media production company set up in Brixton in 2010.
One member of The Keep said: “We started out by winning an Innocent Smoothie competition and were awarded some money, which funded our first equipment purchases.
“Since then, we’ve been growing as a company, but wanted to come back to our original plan – making videos about the varying characters that make Brixton unique. The Book Monger, is the first of a small series we’re planning to do about characters in Brixton.”
While a visit to Bookmongers is usually productive and always a joy, I sometimes pop in just to see Rosa.

Great video – thanks for sharing. Bookmongers is fantastic and helps give Brixton its local feel.
Enjoyed that. This promises to be a fun little series.
Bookmongers is one of my favourite places in Brixton. I hope it can survive.
