Sadly, I have been asked to take down the site. If you want to check out Macleods’ books, you’ll just have to do so in person: 

455 Pender St W (at Richards), Vancouver, BC 
Mon - Sat 10-6, Sun 11-6, Holidays 12-5

Thanks for everything,

One of the best used bookstores anywhere. I’m sad to see this tumblr go, but not at all surprised, since I once asked about it when I was there and was greeted with terrified looks from the younger staff that made it clear the owner is HIGHLY internet-phobic. Maybe I’ll go in and take some sneaky pictures to post for myself some day.

So long and thanks for all the fish books, anonymous Macleod’s Books blogger!

Stolen iPhone means my vintage book porn doesn’t seem nearly as impressive, but it sure does feel good to have the band back together.
FYI: The red ones on the right are a lovely set of collected works by various authors from Black’s Reader Service, dated 1950, the navy & gold ones to their left are beautiful editions of comedies, biographies and histories issued by the Book League of America, dated 1942, and at the far left are selected volumes of Britannica’s Great Books of The Western World series, dated 1952.
Next step: we make it pretty.

Gustav Klimt : The complete paintings

An amazing cover for this new book published by the great Taschen publishing company : “Klimt : the complete paintings”, 676 pages, only 150€ for this exhaustive monography of the Viennese artist… This year, we are celebrating the 150th anniversary of his birth, so this book is a also a celebration of Klimt, who died in 1918. Klimt painted 230 art work, among them 54 landscapes. His golden paintings were inspired by the mosaics in Ravenne (Italy). 

Tobias G. Natter is the author of this big book. He studied art history and history at the universities of Innsbruck, Munich, and Vienna. Since October 2011 he has been the director of the Leopold Museum in Vienna. His extensive publications and his conception and organization of exhibitions on the theme of “Vienna around 1900” have made him an internationally acknowledged expert on Viennese art at the turn of the century.

I didn’t buy it, but this would have filled a lore hole I didn’t even know I had.

Looks like this might be a First, if there are any collectors out there.

MYSTERIOUS TINY ROOMS BY MARC GIAI-MINIET

French artist Marc Giai-Miniet (Born in 1946 in Trappes) makes some of the most incredibly detailed (and disturbing!) dollhouses that we’ve ever seen. Marc started creating these disturbing shadowbox dioramas rather late in his career, recurring themes include libraries, furnaces, laboratories, submarines and intestine-like tubing in lonely, decaying spaces.
