The Last Chapter is a bright and airy independent secondhand bookshop / gallery, based in south-west Sheffield and overlooking Endcliffe Park.

We believe that the traditional book will continue to occupy an important place within the digital age. Paper and print provide a multisensory experience of text and illustration that is more than an exercise in reading for information. Our shop plays host to an array of high quality secondhand books, hand-bound journals, beautiful art photography and a changing display of book and paper art provided by selected UK artists.
