Welcome to Perfect Books

Charles Van Sandwyk Cards and Books

We have just refreshed or stock of Van Sandwyk cards and books. We’re especially excited about the Alice in Wonderland collection!

Leuchhturm Stock

We are pleased to once again have a full compliment of Leuchtturm products in the store including planners, notebooks, jottbooks and more


We also have our annual supply of calendars in stock. Remember — they disappear quickly.

The New Perfect Books

We have completed almost all of our renovations and we are once again open for browsing. There are a few details to tidy up but we think you’ll enjoy the new store. Please note that we are reverting to our regular hours effective immediately. See below

Hours of Operation

We are once again open 7 days a week for browsing after completing an exciting expansion and overhaul of the bookshop. We are now open from 10 to 6 Monday through Saturday and from 11 to 5 on Sundays.

Please ignore the misinformation that is appearing on Google. This is where our correct hours are posted.


Perfect Books – Strong and Able!

Thanks to all of you for supporting us throughout the past few years. After  two years of Elgin Street reconstruction and 18 months of Covid we continue to grow, thanks to you! The proof is in the beautiful new shop. New floors, new lighting, new shelves and the same great service. We look forward to showing off our new look to you. See you soon!
