You’ll find all the contemporary best-selling authors from Atwood to Yanagihara at this city branch of Australia’s largest indie shop of music, books and film
Housed in a modern, glass-walled building on the lesser walked streets of Barangaroo, Title is the third store of its kind in Sydney, which prides itself on an eclectic collection of vinyl, specialist coffee-table books and independent films.
Staff take extreme care with large, photographic covers of fashion, architecture and sport. Every interest is catered for, from glossy spreads of Aston Martins to a collection of David Lynch’s best nude scenes. There’s shelf of classics covering Dickens to Tolstoy, cooking inspiration from Yotam Ottolenghi and Matt Moran, plus deep dives into the works of artists Chuck Close, Brett Whiteley and David Hockney. And the kids get a whole table of the latest picture books to grab at.
Here for the music? Head to the far left of the store, by the back. New, retro and certified classics mingle together in an A-to-Z catalogue that spans Kendrick Lamar to Triple J faves First Aid Kit. They’ve also got a selection of turntables and record players if you want to upgrade your collection.
It’s a store where you’re guaranteed to find what you were looking for – even if you didn’t know you were looking. It has a good selection of gift-ready items like Leuchtturm diaries and Moleskine notebooks, motivational and inspirational titles with a ream of ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ merchandise, KeepCups, Wes Anderson flick-throughs and specialist magazines like Limelight and Start-Up. Even if you only walk away with a $3 Penguin Classic, you’ll be inspired to return for another.
