Adobe Books & Backroom Gallery

Top choice books

in The Mission, Dogpatch & Potrero Hill

Wall-to-wall inspiration – just-released fiction, limited-edition art books, rare cookbooks, well-thumbed poetry – plus zine-launch parties, comedy nights and art openings. Mingle with Mission characters debating all-time-greatest pulp-fiction covers and SF history (founder Andrew is a whiz) and see SF artists at the Backroom Gallery (well worth the walk to the back of the store) before they hit Whitney Biennials.

Adobe is a member-supported cooperative, and bargain book buys underwrite community events. The store also supports a books for prisoners program.
