Babylon Falling was a concept driven independent bookstore, located in Lower Nob Hill San Francisco and open between June 2007 and June 2009, with a focus on the spirit of Revolution. In addition to new books we also carried similarly themed collectible toys, artwork, DVDs, and our own in-house t-shirt line featuring designs submitted by artists who exhibited at the store.
Revolution surrounded us. On one side of the store the shelves were dedicated to the history, theory, and politics of Revolution. The other wall of shelves was focused on aesthetic and stylistic Revolution and featured sections devoted to literature, graphic novels, art, and music. The toys, artwork, clothing, and DVDs complemented and supplemented the collection of over 3,000 titles. NO FILLER.
We also hosted regular events that included performance art, book signings, and art exhibitions. You can see pictures of all of our events here
