Hart’s Fine Books is a charming, eclectic bookstore in the heart of downtown Sequim. Home to a vast collection of vintage and rare books, the shop also showcases a wide range of ephemera, mainly from the early film industry. The store is a homage to William S. Hart Jr., whose personal collection forms the core of the items for sale. Its ambience evokes an earlier era.
Every book tells a story, above and beyond its author's intent. William S. Hart Jr. was the son of two silent film stars, Winifred Westover Hart and William Surrey Hart. This collection reflects the interests of their lives as well as his own. You may pick up a book signed by Tod Browning, the director of many early films including the 1931 silent film "Dracula" and the 1934 cult class "Freaks." In another section, you can browse books on military history and see how they tie in to Bill Hart Jr.'s experience as a cryptographer during World War II.
