website

This thriving bookshop near Pittsburgh’s main universities is a gem in the city. It's known for selling and appraising books, printed materials, and original art, but it also deals in autographs, photographs, and rare books dating back to the 16th century. If the shop doesn't have what you’re looking for, ask if it’s in the warehouse, which holds 150,000 books that don’t fit on the store’s shelves. The shop is also home to Desolation Row, a small independent record store that specializes in indie rock and jazz, among other genres.
