Mr Pickwicks Fine Old Books
Nestled in the heart of the glorious, World-Heritage-listed Blue Mountains, in a massive 3-storey superannuated Bank Building, sits the delightfully eccentric books and antiques shop known as Mr Pickwick's Fine Old Books and Antiques.
Mr Pickwick store contains some 60,000 books in all, ranging from rare and arcane leather-bound antiquities through extensive sections on Art, Architecture and Literature to a virtual second-bookshop upstairs containing some 4,000 Penguins and a further 10,000 paperbacks.
Mr Pickwick has built a large and loyal trade amongst the locals of the Blue Mountains community, but the shop is also a welcome discovery for the several millions of tourists from all over Australia and the rest of the world who annually pass through this lovely spot.
The spectacular Blue Mountains area is well worthy of a visit in any event. Mr Pickwick's just adds a dollop of cream to the bun for the civilised visitor.
