The Nicholas Building is crawling with creative types – jewellers, milliners, artists, craftmakers, fashion designers – and the amazing Collected Works Bookshop. Specialising in poetry and prose with an eclectic mix of Australian small press titles, you can sneak in to Level 1, 35-37 Swanston St with your headphones on any time during business hours. With any luck, you’ll find pass the ghost of Vali Myers while trotting up the stairs. She may or may not have a bottle of sherry on hand for you and Maurice McNamara.
