SAN FRANCISCO | Adobe Books & Arts Cooperative is a book store, gallery and creative space that’s operated as a volunteer worker owned cooperative since 2013. Prior to this, it was a book store owned and operated by Andrew McKinley, who opened the original Adobe nearby on 16th Street in 1989. Rising rents forced McKinley to close the original store, but local artists banded together to take it over and keep it going as a cooperative.

It’s a small, cute space with a loved-in, homely feel about it. There’s a whole range of books covering almost every topic imaginable, and the volunteers who work there are more than happy to chat about what’s on the shelves and help you find something. It’s not just about books either. There’s a diverse offering including things like vinyl and magazines.

The gallery is at the rear of the book store and provides an alternative space where artists can make momentous decisions in their practice and experiment freely in the company of their peers. Exhibitions activate the space, connect with the neighborhood, and integrate the book store.

If you’re visiting San Francisco, Adobe Books & Arts Cooperative is definitely a place you should check out. Buy a book from here, and you can do your part in helping ensure that the Mission stays creative and artistic, while experiencing a true part of what makes this community tick.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
