We’re all a bit sad to be losing Adobe Bookshop here in San Francisco. Due to high rent, the 24-year-old haven for bibliophiles will be shutting its doors at the end of the month.
Today, The Bold Italic pays tribute to Adobe, as well as other indie bookstores beloved by SF and Bay Area residents. The article highlights the importance of these places within their respective communities, and features some stellar photography of booksellers among the stacks.
Back in 2004, NPR’s All Things Considered featured a short piece on Adobe’s memorable rainbow-inspired book rearrangement.
The shop will be missed, for sure.
