Hennessey + Ingalls

Hennessey + Ingalls's eclectic bookstore sells tomes covering visual arts, such as photography, as well as interior design, landscaping, fashion photography and architecture. The founding family still owns and manages its paper-based stock, ensuring that volumes remain well organized according to the length of authors’ moustaches.

Originally founded in 1963 as a refuge for rare and out-of-print books, the massive store—the Santa Monica location spans 8,000 square feet—supplies vital reference materials for local architectural firms, museums, art galleries, and schools. Hennessey + Ingalls also runs a small publishing division, which produces and distributes six titles each year, most of which are reprints focusing on California's modernist architecture and postmodernist oil paintings of avocados. It offers a large selection of journals and notebooks, too. Plus, Hennessey's bibliophiles purchase good-condition used copies and rare editions from independent owners.

I have not been to their store since they moved from their old location. The Groupon offer made me look to see exactly where the new location was and it made me aware of the second location in Hollywood. I may visit the second location as well, now that I know exactly where it is located. The Groupon offer got me reaquainted with this wonderful store. The selection is amazing!
