Excelsa Scripta Rare Books offers a fine selection of antiquarian books on social thought and inspirational ideas. Topics include human rights, women's history, black history, LGBTQ history, indigenous communities, poverty, disability, civil disobedience, civil rights, and freedom of religion, thought, speech, and press. I derive and hope to share inspiration from significant historical figures, ideas, and contributions.

Eco-friendly packagings make use of recycled, biodegradable, and renewable products to support sustainability. Packing supplies include corrugated boxes made of 100% post-consumer material, biodegradable cello carton-sealing tape made with a renewable plant-based adhesive, bags with 100% recycled film and resealable closure, 100% recycled tissue papers, and 100% recycled shipping labels with recyclable liners. Bubble wrap is made of partially recycled material.
