We are antiquarian booksellers and writers working from our little bookshop in London, Ontario. The texts we love are bizarre and charming: local history, true crime, the occult, fine literature, artist's books, erotica, counterculture, Canadian art, comic books. Most of all, we love books and we share that mutual love with our favourite clients.
A freelance writer, editor and local historian, Vanessa Brown is the author of The Grand Old Lady: A History of Hotel London and London: 150 Cultural Moments (written with Jason) which was published by Biblioasis in 2017. She is also a murderino, and wants to remind you to stay sexy and don't get murdered!
