Now that Stacy’s Books is gone, where do I look for interesting art books?
Stung without Stacy’s
I could cry everyday for losing Stacy’s Books. What is this city coming to? Anywho, these are the places I go to find interesting art books.
Given at 575 Castro St
They have a GREAT selection of books for adults and kids. I just got an amazing book of photographs by Erwin Olaf. I can hardly take my hands off that book I love it so much.
Swallow Tail at 2217 Polk St
The selection of books here is almost ethereal, so much beauty and so much strangeness.
Barney’s New York at 77 O’Farrell St
Here you’ll find a good selection of fashion and design books. Sometimes they even go on sale! Hooray for sales.
Jonathan Adler at 2133 Fillmore St
Once in a while you can find a great book here. I also like to look here because they are not afraid to carry raunchy books. Everyone needs raunch now and then, especially with a generous sprinkle of humor.
and OF COURSE the SFMOMA store at 151 Third Street.
Get ye there pronto!
I’m sure some of the readers have suggestions too, maybe they’ll kick down with their knowledge in the comments.
