The Book Merchant Jenkins is Brisbane's most beautiful secondhand & indie bookstore, inside an historic West End Church.
Inside the stunning space, with vaulted ceilings, stained glass windows and polished floorboards, bibliophiles will find old and new curious and collectable books, as well as interesting, unique artworks which fill the walls.
Shelves are lined with quality second hand books, including rare and antiquarian books, from an impressive range of genres such as art, classic literature, theology, erotica, ethnopharmacology and psychedelia.
Brand new books of old favourites are mixed in among the pre-loved books, and can be specially ordered if not on the shelf.
Patrons are welcome to browse the shelves and sit and read for as long as they want with comfy chairs provided.
Nice to know - Located on the corner of Dornoch Terrace and Doris Street, this independent book seller is a sibling for Logical Unsanity, the 24 hour book shed in Bardon.
