Founded by husband and wife team Michael Fusco-Straub and Emma Straub in 2017, Books are Magic is the couple’s third bookstore.
The company specializes in out-of-print or hard-to-find titles, but a wide range of popular novels and non-fiction books are also available.
Co-founder and owner Emma Straub says it was a struggle to keep bookstores open and profitable before Covid but found that operating an online bookstore was actually easier than she imagined it would be.
And while New York is lifting the mask mandate in many areas, Books are Magic says that they will still enforce the use of face masks for now.
Books are Magic maintains a corporate office in Brooklyn, New York.
