Rich's shop is a treasure. He does an excellent job curating his collection of books and curio. Lots of really fun, odd, and puzzling selections. He is a really supportive artist and member of a greater art and music community here in L.A. Be sure to catch a show there and buy some cool books.

I love this store!! Richard is awesome. Great book readings and great music performers! One of Pasadena's finest. I say this because everytime I am here I gain something and increase my knowledge with either a new book or meeting a great person. Definitely check it out. Great atmosphere and positive energy.
