Perimeter Books

Perimeter Books is just plain lovely to be in. Its crisp white walls, shelves of specialised art and small press books you’ve never seen before – not to mention the far from uppity customer service – makes it one of Thornbury’s finest attractions. Perimeter Books sells books, but it also shows art. Currently exhibiting are works by Melbourne illustrator Oslo Davis, from his new book Libraryland!, featuring drawings of people, books, weird stuff from Melbourne’s mighty State Library of Victoria. There’ll be exhibitions launching monthly throughout 2012 at Perimeter – it’s the best place for a quick art fix if you’ve found yourself on the 86 tram.
