Farewell Books

Farewell Books - founded in February 2013 on the site of the former Domy Books by former Domy employees Travis Kent & Mikaylah Bowman - is a progressive new and used bookshop and art gallery in the city of Austin, Texas. Culturemap Austin quotes Bowman: "Our aim is to create an inviting, open atmosphere one where you want to stay and look at beautiful books, soak in some new words and see some life-affirming art. I want people to feel inspired here. I want them to find new things at Farewell that will guide their thoughts in new and interesting ways or to read things that will help them feel a part of something." Culturemap Austin continues, "In order to turn the dream of Farewell into a reality, Bowman and Kent have personally taken on second and third jobs. They're so committed to continuing the spirit of community and intellectual expansion that they say they've gone greatly in debt. 'There's no money in opening a bookshop,' deadpans Kent. 'You do it for something else.'"
