Workspace: Book / Shop

My mom and I discovered Book / Shop last spring at a pop-up shop at Fort Mason. It was like love at first sight – honestly we didn’t know what to do with ourselves. Going through the stacks and stacks of books was incredibly inspiring and the owner – Erik, knew the history behind every single book we opened. Both my mom and I left with our hands full of books, posters and their signature “Book / Shop” tote. Both of us were in awe of our discovery. Luckily, Erik and his family opened their lovely Oakland home for me to shoot for this workspace series. Friends, this home is covered in amazing one-of-a-kind books that are in impeccable condition. Enjoy this look inside this beautiful workspace and an interview by Erik.

Thank you Erik for opening up your beautiful home for us to see. We can’t wait for your shop to open! If you are a book lover like myself, be sure to pop over to Book / Shop where he uploads new finds all the time.

    This is the most inspiring interview I’ve read in a long time. I will definitely be shopping at Book/Shop. I wish they would have been at the LA Art Book Fair! Thanks for this, Caitlin!

    Wow- so inspiring! I find books to be very inspiring and his collection sounds so incredible. I also really love the bookshelf he designed and can’t wait to see the modular system. I have stacks of books all over our apartment …and could definitely use some solutions!
