Mondo Books is an independent, artist-run bookshop that focuses on art publications, fanzines, and printed matter, mainly from young and newly established artists from North

We carry Animals, IMA READ, MONARCH, Torpedo Press, BBOOKS, Lubok Verlag, amongst many others. ​​​​Since June 2015, we are located in the front space of Tromsø Kunstforening (Tromsø Gallery of Contemporary Art).
