Books of all types

This old-school store inspires.

Even before the majority of traditional books stores started closing their doors throughout Toronto, Type (the store behind Lowe Roche’s awesome video) was my favourite. There’s just something about it. The creeky floor, the smell, the shelves lining every wall — I’ve spent many Sundays roaming for an inspiring book or magazine. Their collection is small compared to the corporate giants, but curated with care, meaning you’ll never know what you might find. Don’t be afraid to ask the staff for recommendations.

This week’s Frandoms are by Kim Tarlo, ACD, Mosaic.
