“home of the world's only book vending machine!”
The Monkey’s Paw stocks a diverse variety of 20th-century printed matter, with special emphasis on visual culture; obsolete opinions and technologies; lesser-known works on highly specific topics; books as objects; and pop detritus. Here you’ll find the book you didn’t know you were looking for. The Biblio-Mat is a coin-operated vending machine that dispenses randomly-selected old books. It is the first device of its kind, allowing curious bibliophiles to sample the excitement and mystery of antiquarian-book hunting for the cost of a single $2 coin. The Biblio-Mat was designed and constructed for the Monkey's Paw by animator Craig Small.
