Toronto, Ontario, Canada

This is the Biblio page for Jason Rovito, Bookseller, which is reserved mostly for vintage books and ephemera. "Vintage," hopefully, in a way that isn't either fashion or wine. Prices are generally below $50, with a few exceptions. Themes are broad and loose, but often relate back to our specialized themes of the human sciences, design history, and the avant-garde. The stock will rotate in-keeping with scouting seasons. And, by the same token, this site won't always be "open," depending on travel. (Ecommerce sites always make you refer to being "closed" as being "on vacation;" but not all travel is vacation).For a browse through our semi-monthly lists, and/or to subscribe, visit www.paperbooks.caQuestions and requests from collectors, whether private or institutional, are always welcomed. We are active members of the Ephemera Society of America and the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (Association of Canada).
