Booksmith Timeless Classics are the "Best of the Best". They include Pulitzer Prize winners and unknown authors; titles with world-wide appeal and those with a mini audience.
What they all have in common is our connection. We brought some back in print, published a few, and discovered the rest. Almost all are only available at The Alabama Booksmith.
These very special treasures have now become part of our mission - to put them in the hands of readers and collectors with good taste.
Most of our regulars already own signed copies, so to encourage purchasing them as appreciated presents, we will gift wrap, enclose a special card, and ship anywhere in the United States – absolutely free.
Make a list of friends and family who will love a thoughtful surprise and let them wonder how you were able to get the author to sign their timeless classic.
Footnotes from the World’s Greatest Bookstores by Bob Eckstein
Famed New Yorker artist sketches and describes remarkable bookstores all over the globe. Modesty should prevent our suggesting you search out the honored operation sandwiched between Common Good Books in St. Paul, Minnesota and Kanda-Jimbocho in Tokyo, Japan. Ego beat modesty this time!
This cool little book is a “must have” for every library.
Remember, we’ll gift wrap, enclose a Booksmith Timeless Classic card, and mail it anywhere in America for free. Click “ADD TO CART to send signed first editions around the country, and we’ll pick up the tab for mailing. Be sure to let us know how you want the enclosed cards to read.
