Established in 1951, Joseph Fox Bookshop is a general independent bookstore in the Rittenhouse Square area of downtown Philadelphia with a choice selection of new literature, non-fiction, art, architecture, design, music, poetry and books for children. Our knowledgeable staff can help you find the right book for the right person and if we don’t have the book you need we are happy to take a special order – it will often arrive the next day. We look forward to seeing you in the store!

 Customers waited patiently all day to meet David Sedaris.
