  • It’s attached to the hotel Saint George. Great selection of items related to Marfa and the Big Bend Area.  more »
  • Inside Hotel Saint George, Marfa Book Company is a hipster book paradise. Art books and photography books galore (it's in Marfa, after all). This isn't a full-service book store, but it's a wonderful ...  more »
  • The selection of art and architecture books is fantastic. It’s a great place to pick up a souvenir from your trip to Marfa. They also had some beautiful jewelry.  more »

  • A very nice and well laid-out store, but I'm not sure I understand the hype. Almost every book is about minimalist art (as to be expected), Marfa, or the Big Bend region. Frankly, I found the Big Bend books to be the most interesting. Ironically, I didn't see any books about the Marfa Lights, but that could have just been my lack of observation. Overall, a quaint, slightly overpriced bookstore focused on modern art. Check it out if you have an hour to kill.
  • Enjoyed the selection of art books here. Can spend a good chunk of time perusing the collection of titles.
  • An absolutely perfect creation of text, art editions, and clothing. This gem in the desert is second to none with an incredible array of Marfa themed books, heavy hitter art celebs and a beautiful array of standard art books. Beautiful design clashes with a perfect curation of art and design!
  • Books on Marfa and the area, a pretty good poetry section, and a more serious contemporary art book section then most big city museum stores. And some original art as well. Really impressive.
  • A small selection of primarily art books, laid out in a contemporary space adjacent to the hotel lobby. Indifferent staff member. I'm sure this is a thrilling place if you're into art (Donald Judd, etc.), but otherwise no need to visit. My wife and I took our less-intellectual fiction books and read them in the hotel lobby where they have some comfy chairs.
