“Awesome zine and comic book store”

Quimby's is an independently owned bookstore that sells independently-published and small press books, comics, zines and ephemera. We favor the unusual, the aberrant, the saucy and the lowbrow.  We have to be logistically creative in utilizing space because we have so much stuff. Also, we often experiment with getting lots of different type of books to see what works for our customers, like a section for children/radical parenting or humor.

Quimby's is a must stop for me anytime I'm in Chicago. It has a great selection of zines, comics, and small press books. They also have a lot of magazines you don't normally see on the newsstands. The best part of the store is there is a photo booth in the back! Don't forget to cram in there before you leave and pose with your favorite zines!
