About 


Chunking Books is an independent online bookstore run by Sören Schuhmacher.

My intent with Chunking Books is to provide a special insight into diverse themes through a unique selection of rare & antiquarian books. With specialties in 20th century avant garde, art theory, cinema, social/political activism, artists’ books, ephemera, and archival materials.


The term chunking is taken from cognitive psychology and describes the process in which a large piece of information is subdivided into small units (chunks) and then grouped back together as a meaningful whole.
