    Tim's shop is in a beautiful place, too. I can't afford to go there very often. He had prints for sale, too, last time I was there.

    Thanks to everyone who has helped get this list going. I'm headed to Canada and hope to stop at Tim Whelan's on the way back. My apologies to citizens of the area if this is impolite to ask: Is the store in Camden or is it in Rockport? Or is Rockport just the south end of Camden?

    The shop is in Rockport only about 100 feet from the Maine Media Workshops. Here are the directions to the workshops http://www.theworkshops.com/geninfo/...ion/travel.asp

    Plan to spend several hours there.

    Yes... it's in Rockport, not Camden. The two towns are a five minute drive, and yes... plan some time; it's hard to get out of there without some serious browsing and buying.

    SuzanneR,

    Thanks for that info. I'm guessing my wife will find things in Rockport to divert her attention while I'm spending time in Whelan's. Her interest in bookstores/photography does not match mine nor is my interest in folk art/craft shops comparable to hers.

    First Pilgrimage to Tim Whelan's in Rockport, Maine

    We stopped at Tim Whelan's in Rockport, Maine yesterday for a couple of hours on our drive back from New Brunswick, Canada. We found the store, the selection of books, and the framed prints exhibited for sale quite extraordinary. Most memorable for me was Tim Whelan's generous attention and willingness to share his knowledge of, and love for, photography and photographic literature with each pilgrim who visits his store. Just go there--it's worth the journey.

    One of the best bookstores for photography books/literature is located in the Camden/Rockport Maine area. It is well known but for the life of me I cannot think of the name of the place. It is definitely worth the trip!
