With tomes on everyone from Henri Matisse to David Hockney, this sprawling store is a haven for art-history buffs. Set on the outskirts of the South End—handily, just a few buildings down from a cluster of contemporary galleries at 450 Harrison Avenue—Ars Libri specialises in rare and out-of-print books on fine art. Check the website for details of the latest in-store art exhibition.
