Unnameable Books is an independent bookstore located on Vanderbilt Ave, between Prospect Place and St. Marks Ave., in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, New York.[1] It has been profiled as an example of a small New York bookstore that survives as chains, internet sales, and rising real estate prices drive more established New York independents like Coliseum Books and Murder Ink out of business.[2] It was depicted on the cover of the June 9 and 16, 2008 The New Yorker by the cartoonist Adrian Tomine. Founded as "Adam's Books" before being renamed, it specializes in poetry and has a reputation for an eclectic collection of used books.[3] It also carries work from small independent presses, such as Ugly Duckling Presse.
