Though the name might suggest that this shop deals only in old, dusty, used books, the Tattered Cover is actually a nice mixture of both new and old materials. The lightly colored hardwood flooring is original to the building, though it's been sanded down and refinished. The light fixtures dangling from the ceiling are mismatched, coming from renovations to other nearby buildings.

Artwork found on the plum colored walls are pieces that are done by local university students, and young artists just starting out. The bookshelves are new, but hold everything from first editions to the latest best seller, and everything in between. A long table from the late thirties, sitting on a 'recycled' Persian rug displays the latest and greatest, as well as those books that are still selling well.

Behind the counter are a few shelves filled with comic books and collectibles; those few smaller items that are more prone to being stolen.
