About


Printed Page Bookshop is one of Denver’s hidden treasures -- a used book store tucked away in a charming Victorian house.  Our focus is to find interesting books, price them affordably, and put them in the hands of readers and collectors.  We like knowing what our customers’ interests are so that we can find them books they want, whether it’s a volume from their childhood or a first edition of an author they love.  And we love talking to folks about books and sharing the knowledge we’ve gained from years of reading, buying and selling books.

 

 


Best Book Co-op in Denver!

Printed Page is a co-op composed of some 15 different booksellers. We're part of a vanishing
breed - the independent, used book store that's part of a neighborhood. What keeps us going is
our love of books and the lasting relationships we form with our customers. We see ourselves as
a relationship-based haven for readers and collectors to "talk books." Printed Page is clean, cozy,
well-lit and friendly. People are always telling us that browsing for books in our comfortable
Victorian house is a real pleasure.


The co-owners of Printed Page are John Frantzen and Dan Danbom. John was a manager in a
large corporation and an ardent mystery fiction collector before coming to Printed Page. Dan
was a speechwriter, book reviewer and collector whose mentor in the antiquarian book business
was legendary Denver writer and bookseller John Dunning. Our booksellers represent former
and current librarians, lawyers, natural resources specialists, teachers and writers, among
others. They bring more than a century of book knowledge to the shop. Because of the variety of
booksellers at Printed Page, we offer a correspondingly wide variety of books --and we're also a
good place to talk to when you have books to sell.


Printed Page is a member of the Rocky Mountain Antiquarian Booksellers Association.
