CURATED COLLECTIONS

FROM THE CENTURY 

This special collection was created by actor/painter/entrepreneur Billy Zane, who kindly supported us with a fundraiser for our bookstore this year and whose creative support was invaluable.  

 

Curated* libraries have been around for centuries, but what makes this selection truly unique are the exceptional people who put them together at Century Books.  World renowned scientists, professors, celebrities, writers, artists, researchers, who are avid readers and would like to share their love for books with you. 

 

Every month we will present unique collections for you to choose from to build a one-of-a-kind library.  Each specially curated shelf is accompanied by a signed letter from the curator and a certificate of authenticity.     

Be shelfish. Enjoy!
