    Mostly art books. But there are some classics in the shelves. They also had some really great textile stuffed animals and other pieces.  more »

    This was a nice surprise considering we just drove 6 hours through the desert to a tiny dot of a town near the Mexico border. It's did have a sort of 'Museum Bookstore' vibe. I suppose that IS the app...  more »

    Omg- so grateful for this spot of culture! Lots of beautiful art books but lots of books by local artists and writers, so I bought one of those. It's not a cheap shop but I wasn't expecting it to be. ...  more »

    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.

    Fantastic and eclectic selection of art books and esoteric fiction. The arrangement of the books was an art exhibit unto itself. Small offering of art, jewelry, and clothing items.

    I stop here every time I go out to West Texas, hands down great selection of just about everything - if you want mainstream or fluff go someplace else though - this is for "readers". Poetry selections are fantastic. Just a nice place to stop, collect your intellect and come out with something to make you go "Hmmmm." That's what books are about.

    Very nice little shop.

    Really lovely bookstore - there's a great selection of books and a small art gallery connected. The staff are super nice and it's fun just to look at the books and hang out!
