G. J. Askins, Bookseller
A bookstore with a selected general used and antiquarian stock emphasizing the arts (artist monographs, art history, crafts, architecture and photography). Other subjects include history (regional, US and the world), natural science/gardening, literature,music, theater, cookery, and sport. Open by chance or appointment.
After 1960s college and military service, and graduate school and more military service (National Guard call-up), I moved to New York City and started a publishing career in children’s books (Scholastic Magazines and Random House). I left publishing to open (1981) a used bookstore in New Lebanon, NY. That business is now slowly being phased into my new North Adams store. The primary business is now at the Eclipse Mill Artist Studios, a live-in/commercial condominium complex at the historic Eclipse Mill in North Adams, Massachusetts.
