Beautiful Books

"Of gifts, there seems none more becoming to offer a friend than a beautiful book."

- Amos Bronson Alcott

There are beautiful stories, and then there are beautiful bindings to match! Leatherbound, gilded, decorated, and more. Who doesn't love a bit of shelf candy?

Why buy from us?

- Support Small -

We're an indie bookstore and a local small business, not a big corporation. We really care about every order!

- What You See Is What You Get -

You don't have to buy your secondhand books sight unseen or get bamboozled by misleading stock photos. Our book listing photos are of the exact item you'll receive.

- Safe Delivery -

You'll never catch us just tossing a book into an envelope and shipping it out like that to be banged up and broken in transit. Well-padded boxes are our friends. For orders large and small, we always package and ship with care!
