About us

Acanthus Antiquariaat was founded in 1990 and offers rare, beautiful, and curious books, prints, and objects, in a wonderous venue, newly styled as a true cabinet of curiosities.

We carry a stock of rare & antiquarian books and prints, including subjects like travelling, natural history, science, photography, avantgarde, illustrated books, fine bindings, optical toys, popular prints & broadsides, ephemera, objects of curiosity, and many more… in short, everything that we find interesting, beautiful, remarkable, or simply weird.
