Kelly Myers found Bigfoot all around Humboldt and captured the furry beast in her coloring book Bigfoot in Humboldt which we will feature at Arts Alive in July. Come color a page, peruse the other bigfoot materials, and feel the love of Bigfoot in Humboldt!
Writers on the Wall, an exhibition of works by well-known authors that are suitable for framing. Among the items on display will be signed photographs from science fiction writer Ray Bradbury, library catalog cards autographed by Larry McMurtry, and rare paintings and silkscreens by Kurt Vonnegut. Ask to see some of our selection next time you are in the store.
We’re excited to release our 33 list, on Social Movements of all kinds, from wacky to world-changing.
Eureka Books is excited to announce that we will be hosting bestselling author and artist Obi Kaufmann for a book signing at Arts Alive on May 5th from 6pm to 9pm.
If you love California, you need this book. Obi Kaufmann grew up in the San Francisco East Bay and has spent decades exploring the Golden State’s natural wonders with paintbrush in hand. Now he has gathered his art and understanding of nature’s cycles in a unique collection of science and art like nothing we’ve seen before. The California Field Atlas is part atlas and part field guide, but so much more than both of these. It’s an art book and a exploration of our natural past and possible futures. Come meet Obi and see for yourself why this book sold out before Christmas and is destined to become a classic!
This is an excellent article from the San Francisco Chronicle found on Obi Kaufmann’s website:

To all our friends in Humboldt County,
For the last 30 years, Eureka Books has hand-picked our eclectic and interesting selection books to fit this one-of-a-kind community. We’re known as the “old-book” store, and we always have thousands of good used books and uncommon first editions.
But if you haven’t visited our beautiful Victorian storefront in Old Town in a while, you may not realize that Eureka Books has the largest selection of new books in town. We stock thousands of new titles, and if we don’t have what you are looking for, we can probably get it in a day or two.
This year, we’ve teamed up with other Northern California independent bookstores to offer you these gift ideas. There’s something for everyone on this list. But there’s no substitute for talking with a bookseller. This holiday season, we’re here for you, seven days a week, just as we have been since 1987.
Happy Holidays from all of us as Eureka Books,
Amy, Jack, Jen, Kaity, Katie, Mike, Russell, Scott, and Solomon
This may be the reason for you to get on social media if you are not already there.
We recently opened up a page to view some of the wonderful books that come through our shop every day.
So check it out and come by the shop in real life to see these rare books in person.
Hiking Humboldt Volume 2 Author Rees Hughes and Cartographer Jason Barnes will be signing books for Arts Alive at Eureka Books in Old Town Eureka on December 2nd.
Hiking Humboldt Volume 2 provides an excellent companion to Volume 1. A love of trails and nature brought this team of authors, cartographers, and graphic designers together to create two books that are the definitive collection of hiking guides for Humboldt County. Published by Backcountry Press, Hiking Humboldt Volumes 1 & 2 are the perfect gift for the adventurers in your family.
Backcountry Press, based in Kneeland, is owned by Michael Kauffmann and Allison Poklemba. This husband and wife team have ensured that Volume 2 is 100% Humboldt-made. Allison and Michael do graphic design, website development, and book distribution. Times Printing in Eureka printed the book on recycled paper. The full-color, 216 page guide retails for $29.95 and can be found in all bookstores (and other stores) across the county.
