Anthropologie, Booksellers Extraordinaire?

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

Has anyone else noticed the arrival of many more books than usual to Anthropologie stores? The last few times I have been into an Anthropologie location, I noticed that there were tons of well-chosen titles for sale -- and not necessarily new books either. At the SoHo location, I spotted Annie Leibovitz At Work, which is more than two years old and hardly a best-seller (it is an excellent read, by the way, buy yourself a copy!). Likewise, the Domino book was a not-new-but-always-wonderful tome for sale.  I'm thrilled to see Anthropologie selling books, and I hope that this trend continues.

Another clue that Anthro is serious about their book selection is their exclusive on Holly Becker's new book Decorate: 1,000 Design Ideas for Every Room in Your Home, which is available exclusively through Anthropologe until April 20th. I can't recall another time when a decorating book was launched with a limited release like this, can you? It's an interesting development, and I applaud Anthropologie for selling books in this increasingly digital age.

I have never been in an Anthropologie store but I know I would love it! Old books, new books, you can't have too many books ~ that's my motto!

I couldn't agree more! In fact, I might even characterize myself as a book hoarder!

As if I needed another reason to go into Anthropologie. Sigh. I just found your blog and it's quite wonderful!
