Every book lover's collection includes a few treasured favorites with frayed edges and covers soft from wear. Richard Baker's remarkable paintings of vintage paperback books capture these intimate details. The "book portraits" feature titles by some of the most iconic writers of the modern era, from Emily Dickinson and Mark Twain to George Orwell and Susan Sontag.
The Greenwich Historical Society's mission is to preserve and interpret Greenwich history to strengthen the community’s connection to our past, to each other and to our future. All proceeds from our museum store support this mission.
