Kestrel Books

About Us

Established in 1985, Kestrel Books is proud to be moving into its third decade as a knowledgeable, reliable dealer  of used books in Vancouver, Canada. Kestrel carries rare, fine, outof print, and antiquarian books, as well as general inventory. Our Featured Books and Art Prints pages highlight books that are new or rare as well as art prints from first editions.

Located in Kitsilano, Kestrel Books is just west of Banyen Books, near Alma Street and Jericho Beach.

We are proud to announce that we were given the Silver Award for Best Used Bookstore in Vancouver in the 2010 Westender Newspaper Best of the City awards. 

Ruby, the Abyssinian Tabby cat, is the bookstore ambassador. Expect her to greet you as you enter. She is very affectionate and loves to be touched, so bring the kids. The two short videos below feature Ruby.
