Anthology was founded more than a decade ago when Asian Books, a seller of fine
and scholarly books on Asia and the Islamic world, became the first Harvard
Square bookstore to computerize its operations. In 1989, Anthology Inc. was
organized to provide booksellers with a powerful, easy-to-use, and inexpensive
bookstore management system. Founder Pei-shan VanZoeren, a software designer and
bookseller with over 20 years of experience, introduced Anthology at the 1990
American Booksellers Association convention to an enthusiastic bookseller
Since that time, Anthology has grown and developed into the preeminent inventory
control system in the bookselling world. Retailers like toy and gift sellers have
also discovered the functionality and intuitive nature of Anthology and recognize
its versatility in meeting the inventory control needs of their stores.
Headquartered in the scenic resort town of Traverse City, Michigan, Anthology is
a mature, growing team of bookselling and computer professionals whose vision is
to empower booksellers by creating powerful, easy-to-use, and affordable
inventory control solutions.
