Type is a love story—a love story about two people who both love books. Canadian books, specifically. Samara Walbohm and Joanne Saul met while studying CanLit in the ’90s, and despite the doom and gloom of Amazon looming on the horizon, the academic duo dreamed of opening an eclectic bookshop where keen-minded readers could gather to discuss great novels. Since 2005, Toronto’s most avid readers have been pilgrimaging here to stock their home libraries.
