We’ve spent the last 12 years refining a bookshop EXPERIENCE we believe is unlike any other. Unfortunately, in the space of a few days, our world has been turned upside-down, like it has for most of you as well. We are now prohibited from providing an experience and, to be honest, our business model didn’t factor in pandemics.
HOWEVER… our particular industry has been subjected to various degrees of disruption throughout our career so we’re already adapting by creating a bookshop SERVICE we believe is unlike any other!
Head over to the Your Pick page for all the details – let’s not allow a little virus to get in the way of a good story…
POPPING UP IN MELBOURNE!
Next weekend (July 7-9), the country’s most prestigious booksellers will converge on Melbourne for the 45th Rare Book Fair – the culmination of Rare Book Week.
Kate Treloar, of Adelaide’s Pop-Up Bookshop in the Central Market, is proud to be flying the flag for SA. In this debut appearance she will be one of only two South Australian booksellers exhibiting at this internationally recognised event.
Highlights from the Pop-Up Bookshop stall include collectible copies of classic works:
– a signed copy of Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five
– The Complete Works of H.G. Wells (28 volumes with the first volume signed by Wells);
– special editions of Tolkien’s The Lord Of The Rings
– deluxe copies of Don Quixote (Cervantes), The Rime Of The Ancient Mariner (Samuel Taylor Coleridge) and Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
And, for those who still expect a shop full of pop-up books, a collection of particularly rare regimental books (circa 1900) with various pop-ups, pullouts and panoramic artwork!
If you’re in Melbourne, come say “hi” – if not, a message of support would do wonders for our nerves (this is actually a pretty big deal)!
