Noted London bookshop curates library for Silver Muse Arts Café

The Arts Café - a new venue for relaxing with a book, coffee or cocktails
Heywood Hill, the London-based bookshop that creates collections of new, old and antiquarian books for private libraries, is curating books for the new Silver Muse. The collection will be housed in the ship's Arts Café, which also features paintings and sculptures by international artists.

Heywood Hill has an 80-year history and its services have been awarded the Royal Warrant by Her Majesty the Queen, among other accolades.

The company will also select books for some of Silver Muse’s top suites.

The Arts Café is intended to be a place of relaxation and inspiration by day that transforms into a lively lounge come evening. It will offer a café and deli-bar for daytime cuisine, then cocktails as the sun sets.

'We’re excited to offer guests the all-new Arts Café, which promises to be the ideal space for kicking back with a book, enjoying a cocktail or catching up with friends over a coffee,' said Barbara Muckermann, chief marketing officer, Silversea Cruises.

'We have taken a lot of trouble in selecting titles for the Arts Café and we can’t wait to hear what the passengers think of our choices,' added Nicky Dunne, chairman, Heywood Hill.

Silver Muse is due to enter service in April.
