Potterton Books – they’re amazing!

03Nov10

I recently discovered Potterton Books. In New York they’re located on the ground floor of the D&D building but also have an outpost in California. This is hands down THE source to go to if you’re looking for a book you can’t locate elsewhere. Design, decorative arts, architecture, reference, bookplates even unique journals… their selection is outstanding.

Browsing through their website I found a few out of print books I’ve never been able to locate through Amazon, local booksellers and desperate searches through book dealers.

They also offer rare and unique goodies like this French wallpaper album, ca. 1949-1953. Mounted on the pages are inspiration ideas, drawings, sketches and notes for wallpaper designs. It’s a scrapbook of design from the past and would be a fabulous addition to anyone’s library. Add it to my list of things to lust after…

Browse through their site or email them if you are on the hunt for an elusive title. They’re sure to find it somewhere.
