Shopper’s Diary: Lead Apron Gallery Bookshop

May 21, 2010

On a recent visit to LA, I discovered Lead Apron Gallery, Jonathan Brown's rare and collectible art and photography book shop on Melrose Place in West Hollywood. Located in the former Rose Tarlow Showroom, the sanctuary-like gallery is set back off the street and fronted by a lovely garden. Double hung windows flood the space with light, illuminating the rare and collectible art and photography books that are Lead Apron's specialty. Also on view: Lichtenstein ceramics, framed lithographs, African spirit masks, and mid-century furniture, fixtures, and lighting. N.B. Across the street is Lead Apron North, Brown's art gallery across the street, open by appointment only. For more information, go to Lead Apron.
