The Planet empire is a bit of a Mt Lawley institution. Originally taking its home on the bustling Beaufort Street and Walcott Street intersection, Planet began as a video store for all your VHS needs. While they’ve left the corner and ditched the audio and visual elements of their store, Planet is now a delightful bookshop, which boasts a huge range of fiction as well as art and design books and loads of cult and pop culture titles. Planet supports local talent by stocking zines from many Perth creatives. Claire
