Monograph Bookwerks is a fine art and object bookstore featuring a curated selection of books on contemporary art and artists, architecture, graphic design, fashion, photography, artist biographies and art criticism.
Rare and uncommon, and new and used books from around the world share shelf space with local publishers and small press editions. The store also carries studio pottery, mid-century ceramics, vintage art and office supplies and selected art objects, prints and paintings.
Artists John Brodie and Blair Saxon-Hill opened Monograph Bookwerks in May 2010 to provide a place in Portland for artists and the public to study, explore and purchase the best contemporary art books being published today. It is their belief that the resource of a serious art bookstore will forward excellence in art and design locally, and connect Portland with the greater world of art and culture, and vice versa
