Tucked away on the 91st page of Lonely Planet: Colorado is a listing for what sounds like a pretty sweet Denver business. It has “retained the rare magic of a real bookshop” That magic presumably enhanced by threadbare rugs, creaky floors and cardboard cutouts of dead celebrities.
The store is of course Capitol Hill Books. And we are proud to be included among many of Denver’s top independent businesses in the latest edition of Lonely Planet: Colorado.
We’re especially happy that Lonely Planet has given attention to our “staff of book lovers..quick with helpful suggestions.”
With our location across from the Colorado State Capitol, our bookstore has long attracted tourists from across the country and around the globe. We’re very grateful to Lonely Planet and our customers for continuing to support our independent business. Whether you are from Denver or Dublin or Dubai, we have a book here at our store waiting for one of our staff to recommend to you.
A group of cinematic artists took over Type Bookstore in Toronto and made this quite beautiful video celebrating the charm and majesty of printed books. Check it out:
Hat tip to our old friend Stephen Bruner for letting us know about this magical video.
