My dear friend Viniita has found a permanent and physical home for her nomadic book shop called Owl Cave Books. It is currently sharing a space with Little Paper Planes at 855 Valencia Street in San Francisco.
“Owl Cave is an artist-run, bookstore travelling library and blog that began as a table for swapping feminist books and zines at Helmut Newton Ladies Night at the Royal Academy of Arts.” Owl Cave will continue to travel and collaborate with other partners.
On the wall are some vintage mugs. On Sundays, Owl Cave will serve tea to customers and readers. The window has a small seating area. Perfect for reading books in the sunlight.
I bought two books: a vintage copy of Doris Lessing’s Landlocked and a republication, Brigid Brophy‘s The King of a Rainy Country. Oh, I also purchased this small vase from Little Paper Planes. It’s made from a dried up orange that has been repainted, so it has an amazing texture. And not to fear, all books, art, and zines can be purchased in a single transaction.
