Who We Are

Rare Books LA produces rare book fairs which feature leading specialists in antiquarian books, fine prints, photography, ephemera, maps, and more from throughout the United States and Europe.

Rare Books LA is produced by Jen & Brad Johnson, owners of johnson rare books & archives, along with Mechele Burry and Jodi Tolan and a team of dedicated professionals.

We founded Rare Books LA with the intent goal of creating book, fine art, and photography fairs as diverse as our own business. Along with our GSP rescue Elke, we maintain an open bricks and mortar location, The Book Shop in Covina, and also operate as johnson rare books & archives, specializing in everything from California and the West to heavy metal music. We are proud members of the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America and the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers.
