“Marblehead’s first-rate store for used and rare books”
– The New York Times

Artists + Authors is a rare book and fine art gallery located in the heart of a colonial era, seaside town, 16 miles north of Boston. Our shop offers over 50,000 old, rare, and out-of-print books as featured on and an extensive print gallery featuring original signed works of art by noted 20th century artists. We regularly host art shows together with our partner who sell unique birthday gift ideas and really cool things to buy, including artworks of noted modern and contemporary artists. We are members in good standing of the Massachusetts and Rhode Island Antiquarian Booksellers Association and our founder is a former member of the MARIAB executive committee.

We are open Monday through Saturday from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM and Sundays from Noon until 5:00.
During the winter months, we occasionally reduce our hours, so please call before venturing to our shop.
