Prospero’s Books and Media


I had the good fortune to find this bookstore in Kansas City a few weeks ago while visiting my brother and his wife.  Three stories with an excellent selection of used and new books.  Plenty of space in the top floor while the basement housed many unique art installations as well as some really cool old telephones.

You can find more about this bookstore at their website here.

The following is an interview that my brother Anthony completed while I took the pictures.  You can find out more about him here.

Big Blue Marble Bookstore

Recently my wife and I were out in Philadelphia visiting some close friends when I had the opportunity to find and shoot a bookstore nearby.  Even though the focus of this blog is on Detroit and it’s local bookstores I think this fits anyway, this bookstore is a part of an indie bookstore network and features many of the great qualities that the Detroit bookstores I’ve visited have, friendly staff, local authors and great books!
