Erik & Jess

Our hand-picked inventory of used and rare books reflects our interest above all in creative process. Artists and designers, musicians and performers, photographers and filmmakers, poets and novelists – all take their inspiration where they find it. Whatever your practice, Left Bank Books wants to be one of the places you go looking.

Erik DuRon has been a bookseller for over 20 years, at St. Mark's Bookshop, the Globe Bookstore in Prague, and Bauman Rare Books. He is from New York City.

Jess Kuronen is an artist, a graduate of Cooper Union, and a graphic designer for the Wall Street Journal. She is from Philadelphia.

In 2017, they re-launched Left Bank Books, formerly an open shop in Greenwich Village, as an online used and rare bookshop specializing in literature and the arts. They hope to re-open in the Village sometime in the near future.
