One of my most favourite books of all time is Lawrence Weschler's Mr. Wilson's Cabinet of Wonders (I actually adore all of his writing). So I am naturally in adoration of a tiny shop on Dundas West called The Monkey's Paw. By its own description, the store is "Toronto's most idiosyncratic secondhand bookshop, specializing in uncommon scholarly and out-of-print books; ephemera and images; manual typewriters; biological specimens."
And now they've got a blog, showcasing their newest wares with very funny commentary. Here are some of my favourite 'new' books:
From the top: Guidance and Control of Spacecraft (1966), Attempt at a Theory of Synthesist Plastic Expression (1963) and YOU MUST RELAX by Edmund Jacobson (1942). I am being totally sincere when I say that I think I need the last one. And maybe the first one.
