The Monkey’s Paw is a bookstore specializing in old and unusual books.
You wouldn’t expect to find these books in a typical book store.
It’s also home to The Biblio-Mat— the world’s first random vending machine for old books.
To use The Biblio-Mat you’ll need a token from the desk, which costs $4…
… insert the token…
… and voila! Enjoy your mystery 20th century book.
The interior and the name were inspired by W.W. Jacobs horror short story The Monkey’s Paw.
Bibliophiles will love the curated selection of vintage books.
Topics run from Canadian History…
… to animals and evolution.
The Monkey’s Paw used to be on Dundas West but moved to its current Dufferin Grove locationin 2016.
