Welcome to Ariel

 Founded in 1985 by Jane Blanks Ariel started as an expansive bookshop in Paddington. Following a location in the rocks, Ariel is now located in Darlinghurst. The shop remains an institution in Sydney for all things print & literature..

We love Art & Design, Architecture, Interiors and everything in between. We're not all about the coffee-table times, though. There's a wealth of fiction, non-fiction, film, theatre, poetry and children's books as well as plenty of eclectic hard to find stuff and miscellaneous quirky gift brilliance too.
