A book nook or reading chair is the perfect place to curl up and gather your favorite reading materials for a moment of comfort, entertainment, and learning. What can make it even better is knowing that the books you’ve accumulated were acquired from real people who also celebrate books. Luckily, Bookshop.org makes it easier than ever to buy books from independent bookstores.
Despite the significant influence of massive online sellers and retail chains, there is proof that local institutions are here to stay. Books can offer new inspiration and perspectives, which is why many independent bookstores have adapted to the 21st century. We at My Modern Met are also happy to collaborate with Bookshop, which allows you to shop through hundreds of local bookstores all under the roof of one platform.
Bookshop has made it their mission to “financially support local, independent bookstores” because they believe that they are an integral part of communities. My Modern Met is thrilled to be a part of this program as they distribute a portion of their sales to these individual entities.

If you enjoy examining and admiring Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors series as much as we do, you’ll want to check out this book, aptly titled Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors. This book discusses how her installations have influenced contemporary art over the past 50 years.
Our curated list will benefit independent bookstores and build community with these amazing local shops. Our Bookshop collection is organized by categories. Each section is assigned to different topics of art, design, and photography, but we also dive into more specialty subject matters like natural art supplies, learning macramé as well as instructional books to learn how to draw. And have you listened to the My Modern Met Top Artist Podcast? You’ll also find a collection of books from our past guests.
Our editorial team regularly adds publications to our Bookshop collection. Be sure to check out our shop and bookmark it so you can see what we continue to add to our book list.
