Passages Bookshop & Gallery, located in Portland, Oregon, specializes in unusual, fine, and rare books and graphic art, focusing on poetry, modern art and literature, fine printing and artist’s books, and related materials.
We host readings, book launches, music, and receptions for artists in connection with our program of regularly changing exhibitions.
