Welcome to
Gargoyle Books

A woman-owned online business since 1996, we liken ourselves to the magnificent Gargoyles of myth & legend, serving as "protectors" of books, finding those that have become lost & safeguarding them all until they make their way home to you. With a wide-ranging & eclectic stock, we specialize in odd, esoteric, unusual, & out-of-print, with a particular fondness for illustrated books, fairy tales, & vintage children's.
