Musty and old, like something out of a movie. Enjoyable for book lovers.
nov de 2021
This one is going to fit a niche market but if you love books you'll enjoy your visit. It's smelly and old and musty with wooden ladders and steps dotted around the place so that you can reach the higher shelves. My teenage daughter declared that it was "just like a movie". Many of the books are the ones that you still see on Grandma's bookshelf and they aren't exactly cheap. That said, there's a certain charm for the book lover and some of the rare works are genuinely special.

My daughter and I really enjoyed our visit. We both took home a purchase and we'll definitely be back to have a wander through on our next visit to Brisbane.

excellent bookshop
out de 2019 • A sós
I wandered into Archives back in August and was delighted by the selection. I picked up a few interesting pieces, not least of which was an autographed copy of Lady Flo’s Country Cooking. I found the staff knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. I’ll go back when next I’m in Brisbane.

Amazing if you love books
ago de 2019
This place holds some pretty amazing books. And you will need to just keep coming back to check it all out as there really is a lot of books.
Staff member that worked the other day filled us in on any questions we had which made the experience of coming here just that little more special. The collection of old books blew me away.

Little book gems to be found!!
mai de 2019 • A sós
Just off the bustling and busy Brisbane City Centre streets, Archives Fine Books is a haven for those who love second hand books. It's sheer size apart, you will meet the 2 lovely people who run the bookstore, Dawn & Hamish. The long aisles of books are well marked and ordered, but D&H can point you quickly to whatever it is you are interested in or looking for. My prize find was a 1958 hard cover edition of The Phantom Major in just excellent condition. And for less than AUD10, how could I say no?
Be prepared to not rush your visit, and to look literally high and low as you experience one of the very best 2nd hand bookstores around. Of which there are fewer and fewer left.
Visit Archives Fine Books: you won't regret it!!

MUST VISIT FOR BOOK LOVERS
mar de 2019 • Família
We had some great time when we landed in Archives , as they have more than million books and surely some of them are so old that you would surely love to treasure those. The genre of books and the authors is simply mind boggling and we had spent 3 hours without knowing how we had spent. The books are reasonably priced as well and sure you will not go disappointed and will latch on to some finest books once you land up there.

A top place to escape
jan de 2019 • A negócios
With so many book stores closing down due to the introduction of eBooks it is great to see some book stores still in operation. This one - The Angel Key Publications team visited in January 2109. A great place to escape, nicely set out with friendly staff. Real hold in your hand books will never disappear completely. A book can be held in your hand or lifted from a bedside table. It does not have batteries that go flat in the middle of the best part of the read either.

boasty, musty, fusty but interesting
jul de 2018 • Amigos
I think the owners are charming, Dawn and the bearded gentleman. The establishment is unequal in the sense that the inconspicuous historical building contains a lot, partly unrecorded, especially the pulpy or inexpensive staff. Judging from the finely put promotional identity they may store important coollectabilia but what we came across is essentially overpriced by european standards run of the mill (travel, paperbacks, australiana, applied trades etc). Dark alley ridden, profuse and interesting for our short stay. It certainly cosntitutes an important depository as it is subtly characterised by itself and the profession. Their facebook account serves well and purposefully. We came across the next door poster 'bonanza' at the Antiques Guild. You do not need an identification card but they clumsily ask for bags and other receptacles, very rightly to be left by the entrance for obvious reasons I surmise.

...otherwise you won't leave. So many books in one place, at reasonable prices and quite central. A must see :)

A place you can and will lose track of time in
nov de 2017 • Casais
A million books?! I had to see this! Apparently they have old and rare but it is mostly old than rare. It smells like a home for books, I loved looking through the shelves and made a few purchases. There were a few authors I enjoy reading who are hard to come by elsewhere which quite impressed me. The lighting was not great and it was impossible to see what was stored on higher shelves. High ceilings which accomodate super high bookshelves are a short-stop-like-me's nightmare!
Definitely worth a look!

Huge selection of old books
out de 2017 • Casais
This shop boasts over a million old and rare books in their shop. They're certainly old, but more old than rare. If the lighting were better, browsing would be a more enjoyable experience. Worth a visit if you're a bibliophile.
