David Mirvish Books, one of Toronto’s most venerable bookshops since its opening in 1974, will close for business effective February 28, according to the Post. While the events that led up to the decision to shut down are still unclear, what is certain is that DM Books will be sorely missed. Focusing on books on art, the store offers an unparalleled choice of books in its areas of specialization, and has no ready replacement among the city’s other independent bookstores. In addition to its extensive book selection, DM Books will be remembered for the iconic fifty foot Frank Stella painting in its double-height main room, its numerous temporary art exhibits, and the frequent book signings and launches it hosted.
