Book lovers beware, New Edition is a Fremantle institution that will have you beaming with delight, and never leaving empty handed. After beginning in a tiny store on South Terrace and moving into the spacious old bank building on High Street in the west end, New Edition is now found on the corner of High and Henry Streets in the port city.

Stocking a delicious assortment of books related to design, photography, fashion, art, gardening and travel, they also cater to those looking for a long lost literary classic or political piece. Whilst they have their fair share of fiction available, you’ll discover a lot more than just the usual suspects. Highlights include a range of books by local writers, many brought out by the local, independent publisher, Fremantle Press. If you can’t find what you’re after, staff are always happy to order it in for you. Claire
