Manticore Books, located in Orillia, is known as the largest independent bookstore north of Toronto, and many would argue that a bookstore is the heart of any community. Book lovers will absolutely love and appreciate receiving a copy of Bibliophile: An Illustrated Miscellany, and enjoy delving into the quirky world of independent bookstores with the documentary The Booksellers (2020). After watching the documentary, and reading the book, feel inspired to be part of a virtual conversation with retired and current booksellers Don Ross and Michael Fredson.

This package includes a $15 gift certificate for Manticore Books. Those who cannot pick up at Manticore Books in Orillia can choose to use their $15 gift certificate to cover shipping of their copy of Bibliophile to their homes.
