A great place. I have two photographs of it on the web

an exterior shot showing the owner in the window, and

showing the interior.

Both taken with a pre aspherical Summilux - the second one wide open.

Now that's what I call a bookshop. Bookshops tend to draw me in like a
magnet, and it is relatively unusual for me to escape without buying
something. Nice shots, Nathan. If you get chance you must visit
Shaekespeares bookshop in Paris at 4 p.m. on a Tuesday. No good for
photography books but quite an experience as it was frequented by the
poets and people still sleep free amongst the books if they are poor
artists. And why so specific about the time? Well, if you are lucky you
get invited to the top room for tea and biscuits (free) which is a rare
honoured experience which happened to me once and will live a long time
my memory banks.
