Once & Future

Charlotte Ashley – Book seller, collector, writer, editor, historian


Welcome to my pied-à-terre! The blog  is dedicated to issues, essays, thoughts and debates relating to book culture.

I am a writer, editor, bookseller, book collector, book historian and Alexandre Dumas fanatic. I live in Toronto with my husband, two daughters and books.
