MIRRORED SOCIETY: A NEW HAVEN FOR ARTISTS AND PRINT LOVERS

Julian and Kathleen knew it was a risk opening an art bookstore on the second floor of the historical Harvard Square Building, located on Bonita Avenue in the Claremont Village, but the duo also recognized the need for an alternative space and bookstore like Mirrored Society in the city’s already artistic community.

Instead of traveling the almost 35 miles into Los Angeles proper, San Gabriel Valley residents and those even further east, now have an art hub that boasts the same carefully curated collection of new and rare titles that they would find in any of the most popular bookstores in LA. -Alex Khatchadourian

Launched by longtime friends and business partners Kathleen Graulty and Julian Lucas, the bookshop is centered on the visual arts."
