About Brian Murdoch

Brian, and his wife, Ann, have been the owners of Murdoch’s Bookshoppe since 1993.  Since the close of their ‘bricks-and-mortar’ shop in 2013, the focus of their selection has been on out-of-print, rare and antiquarian books, primarily non-fiction. He has participated by invitation in all of the recent Vancouver Book Fairs, and sold books all over the word.  Both his father and his father-in-law were book dealers, so the love of books may be genetic in origin!
