Weird and wonderful bookshops worldwide – in pictures


Acrylic painting on vintage paper. About the paper : I buy on car boot sale or second-hand store some old french book printed from 1860 to 1930 for the remarkable quality of the paper. It has a good thickness, it is sometimes laminated, and usually it is made from hemp or cotton. Furthermore, touched by the time, each sheet is unique. A little bit yellow, usually with some brown spot, it also release the smell of old that I like.
