About Us

Karol Krysik Books was established in 2010. We are based in Toronto, Canada. We are a general antiquarian bookshop with a focus on folklore, legends, fairy tales, publishers’ bindings, illustrated books, detective/crime fiction, literature and history. 
We occasionally issue lists and catalogues and participate in bookfairs in Canada and abroad.
We buy individual books and collections, as well as ephemera, posters, photographs, archives and other interesting and unusual or rare items.


Karol Krysik Books is a proud member of the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of Canada (ABAC), the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB), the Independent Online Booksellers Association (IOBA) and The Provincial Booksellers Fairs Association (PBFA) and we adhere to these organizations’ strict codes of ethics.
