Art and Book Store


A small art and book store has been set up by Imogen Crest in Talbot, a village in Central Victoria. Here at Bancroft Manor, we are delighted that Imogen has taken up residence and that she is making her stock available.

The Bushmother art bags which the Crest Hermitage Art and Book Store stocks are perfect for residents who are planning to pack up their supplies and head out for some art-making. The bag rolls up in luggage and they are a great companion on art walks or book/coffee creative dates. The bag is large enough to hold art finds and your favourite book of the moment. Each bag is 100% cotton canvas and is fully hand washable (or cold machine washable), and easiest to iron while damp. Tumble drying not recommended, due to shrinkage. Designed to fade, it will have that great look of a long-time favourite accessory.

Do take the time to check out the stock here. There is, quite literally, something for everyone and some perfect items to have ready for the gift giving season.
