Turtle Island Book Shop, founded in 1989, sells antiquarian and out-of-print books. Our specialties include literature and poetry, art history, architecture, decorative arts, illustrated and fine press books, typography, and the book arts.

Roger Wicker, the proprietor, has been in the book business, antiquarian and new, since 1978.

Turtle Island issues occasional topical catalogues and customized lists for collectors, special collections librarians, and readers with special interests.

We also conduct appraisals of books and architectural drawings for estate, insurance, and donation purposes.

Visitors are welcome. We’re located at the corner of Claremont Avenue and Prince Street in the Claremont District of Berkeley, California. On the same block are three other specialty independent bookstores and a coffee shop.
