About Us

In this world where the internet has made it easy to find what you are looking for, Lost Horizon Bookstore is a place to find the unexpected. We opened in Santa Barbara nearly 35 years ago with a small but select stock of antiquarian and used books. Our collection has grown over the years and now includes many hard to find titles of Santa Barbara and California Mission History.  We also have Santa Barbara and Old California paintings, photographs and ephemera.  Art and architecture books, fine leather bindings, vintage posters, original rock posters, antique maps, fine prints and much more can be found here. And as we love to read, you will find lots of good literature, both hardcover and paperback.

We are always looking to purchase fine individual items or entire libraries.
