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.

This site features a small selection from our inventory, upcoming events at the shop, catalogues, exhibitions, and other news. Books listed here can be purchased easily through the site’s secure card processing, and you can see more of our inventory at the Passages Bookshop page on ABE.
