About Us


Welcome to the combined Reader’s Catalog and The New York Review of Books online store. In addition to all your favorite Review merchandise and framed prints of every illustration by David Levine published in the magazine, shop.nybooks.com features a thoughtfully chosen collection of practical and delightful objects for readers and writers. We also offer a collection of gifts for children that foster, guide, and encourage a love of reading, writing, and STEM, including books, educational toys, and games for infants through teens.

With a worldwide circulation of over 130,000, The New York Review of Books has established itself, in Esquire’s words, as “the premier literary-intellectual magazine in the English language.” The Review began during the New York publishing strike of 1963, when its founding editors, Robert Silvers and Barbara Epstein, and their friends decided to create a new kind of magazine—one in which the most interesting and qualified minds of our time would discuss current books and issues in depth. Just as importantly, it was determined that the Review should be an independent publication; it began life as an independent editorial voice and it remains independent today.
