New, Antiquarian and Collectible Books
By Michelle Sieling (Nov 14, 2008)
In a city obsessed with all things culinary, it seems strange that we didnít have a book store devoted to the topic of food before, but we do now. Just opened this past weekend is Omnivore Books on Food, located on Cesar Chavez Avenue at Church Street in Noe Valley. More

Out of the Park
By Aaron Davidson (Feb 15, 2008)
Posters. Prints. Paperweights. Paperbacks. Piggy banks. Postcards. Pillboxes. The Petit Pattern book. It's only appropriate that the store housing such miscellany be named Park Life (emphasis on the first consonant). Opened in 2006 on Clement near 3rd Ave. in the Inner Richmond, Park Life provides a fresh take on art and design, creating a space where affordable goods meet adventurous designs. More

A Cheery Treasure Trove
By Jialin Luh (Nov 22, 2007)
There are plenty more pleasant holiday shopping experiences to be had than knocking elbows with competitive chain store shoppers. Rather than steering for the mall, there are plenty of local shops and boutiques to set your course for. One of the newest destinations on your list should be the new Chronicle Books store that opened Nov 8th on Union Street. Hitting its fortieth birthday this year, the San Francisco publishing house has finally expanded beyond its cozy floor space in the Metreon into a full-fledged bookstore and the results are to cheer for. More

Beautiful Revolution
By Jialin Luh (Aug 24, 2007)
Babylon: in Jamaica, this term is an all-encompassing euphemism for oppression and those who oppress. Take it from Jamaican native Sean Stewart, proprietor and mastermind behind Babylon Falling, a newish joint in the Tendernob district. With an overarching theme of revolution, this shop houses a unique and winsome combination of books, toys, skate decks, clothing and collectibles that provides one more reason to love San Francisco. More

Travelers Find Their Way To Get Lost
By Helene Goupil (Nov 25, 2005)
The rocket sign hanging from the front of Get Lost Travel Books, an Upper Market bookstore, marks a major hub of travel literature in the city. Walk in and you'll probably find Lee Azus, the owner, chatting with a customer about a newly released book. More

Portal to Other Worlds
By Jialin Luh (Aug 19, 2005)
The onset of another San Franciscan summer brings back memories of summer reading programs and prompts vegging at the beach or in the park with a good book. For those who enjoy being transported into the vast avenues of imagination, a visit to Borderlands Books in the Mission district offers a portal to other worlds. Here, faeries, androids, goblins, warlocks, dragons, mercenaries from the future and characters of macabre and otherworldly persuasions dwell under one roof. More
