Our history

Drammen Antikvariat was established in 1992 by Randi Helgerud and Jens K. Haugfos, hence we celebrate our 25th anniversary this year (2017). We started up in an old house in the fringes of the city, but moved to the present address in 2007.

From the very beginning our humanist background made it natural to concentrate mainly on fiction and cultural history. The store has almost 12000 books from 5 centuries in stock, catalogued digital from day one. Up to 6 catalogs were issued per year in the beginning, but the last say 15 years, our main sales channels has been our website and not the least the organized antiquarian bookstores’ own website in Scandinavia; www.antikvariat.net. We also have old maps and prints from many centuries and places. They are not available on internet so far. Jens is at the moment chairman in Norsk Antikvarbokhandlerforening (NABF) / The Norwegian Association of Antiquarian Booksellers.
