John K. King Used and Rare Books

We love exploring the four cavernous floors of John K King Used and Rare Books in Detroit. Established in 1965, John has over 1,000,000 books in stock. No tour of our city is complete without a stop here. The historical building which houses his collection used to be the Advanced Glove Factory. Behind it stand the former Otis Elevator building which also was taken over by the bookstore and houses his offices and the rare book room in which Richard Gere was filmed for the movie The Double coming out later this year.
