About Us

Type offers an extensive collection of contemporary fiction and non-fiction, small press titles, art and design, and children’s books.

A joint venture between Joanne Saul and Samara Walbohm, who met while completing PhDs in Canadian Literature at U of T, Type Books opened the doors to its Queen Street store in April 2006; a Forest Hill Village location followed in 2008; and the third location in the Junction opened in November 2018.
