Featured: Brickbat in Philadelphia Magazine

Mentioned in this month's Philadelphia Magazine article "Top Five Indie Bookstores in Philly..."

Brickbat Books
Queen Village: 709 South 4th Street
"The books in Patrick Richardson Graham’s shop are displayed like artwork: Beautiful covers face outward, all arranged on a floor-to-ceiling grid of shelves. Here, it’s not volume that delights, but the relentlessly curated selection. A smattering of new books shares space with used ones (many under $10). But most worth seeking out are the rare editions. Patrick’s favorite? His collection of Aspen, a mid-’60s multimedia magazine (these run from $500 to $900 each). Go here for: Art books in a gallery-like setting."
