Venetia Vyvyan

On the 19th August 1985 Venetia Vyvyan walked through the door of Heywood Hill, number 10 Curzon Street, as a confident graduate who thought that she knew rather a lot about books.  By the end of the day she realised her education had really only just begun.

Thirty years later she is still learning, thrilled by each day’s discoveries and forever grateful to John Saumarez Smith, Annie Cleghorn and David Bacon who were brave enough to employ her all those decades ago.  They taught the value of humour, courtesy and consummate customer service and that is what Venetia Vyvyan Ltd stands for, all those years on.
