About Us


The Beautiful American is an online bookseller offering used and rare book titles ranging from the wonderfully collectible to the simply irresistible.

Our highly curated collection will have something for the seasoned book collector as well as the curious beginner. We are experts in placing the right books into the right hands whether that person is interested in high art and hip-hop or queer culture and children's books.

We are constantly evolving our selection of popular and classic literature, overlooked and vintage books and some things we are suckers for like groovy vinyl records, posters, and graphic art. We are also available for consultations, if there are just too many choices!
