Beached Whale is an online bookstore broadcast out of Austin, TX by John Bell. We deal primarily in visual matter from the 19th through 21st centuries, both high and low. Art, photography, visual propaganda, vernacular artifacts, and other objects of interest from the brightest and darkest of days.

In addition to selling, we also buy books, prints, photos, and the like. If you wish to sell an item or a collection of items that seem relevant to our interests, please get in touch.

And there it lay on the shelf, like a beached whale upon the shore. A sovereign vessel, full of violent glory, found to be lacking only the proper substrate.
