A Hunt for Literary Treasure at Archives Fine Books

There are two types of people in Brisbane: those who love Archives Fine Books, and those who haven't been there yet, even though it has been a Brisbane institution since 1985. Regardless of what you like to read, and how often, perusing the Charlotte Street shop's shelves is like hunting for — and finding — treasure.

Yes, that old book smell will hit you the moment you walk in. And yes, there are more bookshelves — and books, too — than you've probably ever seen in one place. They claim to have more than a million printed tomes, and it certainly looks like it. From '80s cookbooks to tie-in novels for movies you never even knew existed, plus everything in between, you'll find it here.
