IKE'S BOOKS & COLLECTABLES
Winner of South Africa's Best Independent Bookshop
‘One can’t resist a bookshop that makes you want to read the moment you enter it; not later, not when you get home, but right there, right that minute. Ike’s Books and Collectables in Durban is such a place’ (Mail and Guardian). Ike’s is an independent bookshop established in Durban in 1988. Housed in a beautiful old building and opened in its current venue by Nobel Prize winner, JM Coetzee, the bookshop has hosted many authors, whose signatures adorn the walls. We buy and sell out of print and antiquarian books and offer an eclectic range on all subjects. Ike’s is a well-known place to sit, chat and soak up the atmosphere and contrary to popular opinion about booksellers, we do welcome visitors in our solitary space and will even make you a cuppa.
