Collected Works Bookshop, Melbourne

Recommended Posts

The Collected Works Bookshop was a surprising find, and perhaps one of the last bastions of intellectual bookshops left in the digital age.  I'd say it's well worth checking out for this reason alone, but I have to give respect to anyone who stocks a hardbound volume of Novalis' Notes for a Romantic Encyclopedia!

Someone asked me about this bookshop so I thought I'd add this: the bookshop doesn't have a storefront on Swanston, so you have to go into the building and up the stairs.  Here's the entrance:

The stairs are right on the left, and the bookstore is on the first floor up.
