Opened a year ago at 5 Green St., Papercuts JP was prominently displayed Saturday at the seventh annual Boston Book Festival held at Copley Square and adjacent venues. Working in collaboration with Harvard Book Store, Papercuts JP was one of seven metropolitan-area independent booksellers at the Book Festival. Boston proper has only two independent book sellers focusing on new books: Trident on Newbury Street and Papercuts JP.
Papercuts JP had a table overflowing with new books at the Boston Common Hotel on the second floor conference room.
This summer, Jamaica Plain News spoke to proprietor Kate Layte about her first seven months in business.
Jamaica Plain boasts a strong ecosystem of independent businesses, supported by organizations like JP Local First, of which Papercuts JP is a member. Jamaica Plain News is also a member of JP Local First.
