In March 2018 we reopened our shop, after having been closed for 7 years. Acanthus was founded in 1990 and offers rare, beautiful, and curious books, prints, and objects, in a wonderous venue, newly styled as a true cabinet of curiosities.

We carry a stock of books and prints, including subjects like travelling, natural history, science, photography, avantgarde, illustrated books, fine bindings, optical toys, popular prints & broadsides, ephemera, objects of curiosity, and many more in short, everything that we find interesting, beautiful, remarkable, or simply weird.
