ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Waterloo Book Fair held every weekend under the Waterloo Bridge in London, England. A series of book stalls is featured during the fair that offers a mixture of old books, magazines and prints. The book fair is organized by a group of local used-book dealers and is patronized by students, locals, and tourists that usually go to the fair to look for souvenirs and save money by purchasing the book at a fraction of the original price.
