I was at ss2 with my editor earlier this afternoon to visit this bookstore to discuss some work related issues. But while the proprietor, Kay, was attending to some customers, I took the chance to look around this place.
Before the meeting my editor briefed me about the books How&Why carry - mostly design and architecture, as well as other literature that arent usually carried in major bookstores. Browsing, I came across some Emily The Strange stuff, complete Sandman series and paraphernalia, magazines and books on advertising, design, photography, artwork, architecture, music and the like. A great source for quirky, creative, interesting, hard-to-find stuff. And no, I'm not getting paid for this ;)
There are many other non-literature items on sale too. They also carry posters, gifts items [really nice collection of artistically designed blank cds, etc], as well as a series of t-shirts from the 108 movement. I don't know how much it retails for, but its all really cool stuff ;)
This is one of the places you wouldnt mind going broke at - if you can afford it ;) graceshu # 9:47 PM
