Media and News coverage of our little shop.
We’re super excited to have been featured in the recent issue of Go! Magazine, from the Monterey Herald. June 12, 2014
Written by Mike de Geve, the article says of Old Capitol Books:
“If you long for the company of deep thinkers, revolutionaries and literary giants, the 9-foot-tall stacks at Old Capitol Books aren’t a bad place to start. Down one aisle, up another, and you’ve brushed past millions of pages popping with the ideas of John Locke, Karl Marx and Simone de Beauvoir. Around a corner, up another row, and your fingers are rubbing the spines of Goethe, John Steinbeck and Robinson Jeffers.
“You may not believe in ghosts, but something’s going on here that you won’t experience online. Even the most average student might feel brain-stirrings that seem to be making room for another world view.”

“this place calls to mind a used-book version of Portland’s world-famous Powell’s: a little city of towering bookcases with street signs at every corner pointing to fiction, travel, religion, fantasy, philosophy, biography, art, cookbooks … pretty much any topic you could think of. Books are alphabetized, something that is almost unheard-of in the used-book world.”
