Fodor's Review

Books on advertising, art, and architecture—from green homes to an ode to sans-serif typefaces—pack the shelves of this aesthetically pleasing store, fittingly located in the arty 401 Richmond heritage building. Part of the store is devoted to modern gifts, including exquisitely carved and painted toy blocks, and coveted items such as Crevasse, a high-rise-like vase designed by architect Zaha Hadid. Swipe DX, another branch of this store, can be found in the Design Exchange at 234 Bay Street in the Financial District.
