Pretty Old Books is a book shop like no other, offering a wide variety of vintage and out-of-print books on every topic along with decorative book sets in a rainbow of hues. My mission is to offer an entertaining and transparent book discovery process that invites you to join in a fun community of book lovers around the world while finding must-have treasures to add to your home library. 

Decorative Books

I offer a carefully curated selection of curated vintage book sets for home and event decor. My book sets have been used by celebrities, movie and tv studio prop departments, Airbnb owners, wedding planners, home stagers, and hundreds of individual home decorators around the world. I have also been featured in Flea Market Decor magazine.

Meet the Founder

Pretty Old Books was founded in 2018 by me, Jess Dollar, and continues to be run as a home-based, virtual book shop from the small town of Athens, Alabama. I am an avid reader of non-fiction and love thinking of new ways to make Pretty Old Books the most unique and engaging book shop on the planet.
