W&i : About Us

Whitworth and I – Books is a specialty online bookseller. Longtime bibliophiles, we’ve turned our love of book design, illustration and stories — and a predilection for bringing piles of books home — to used and collectible book sales.

Our professional and academic experience in art, design, natural history interpretation, and gardening and landscape design is reflected in the kinds of books we collect and emphasize in our catalogues. We also search out modern first editions and illustrated books, as well as fly-fishing and related outdoor titles.

So many books, so little time.”
