The information below is printed on the back of the card:
The Blackwell company was founded in 1879 and its bookshop on Broad Street is an absolute treasure for all book lovers. The small frontage belies the enormous space inside, which covers four floors and includes the vast underground Norrington Room. Opened in 1966, the Norrington Room extends under neighbouring Trinity College and has three miles of shelving. Many happy hours can be spent in this shop, with books to suit all tastes. There is even a cafe!
