    Interesting. For the life of me, I can’t figure why Kinokuniya has a no-camera sign in it. Lots of beautiful pictures can be made.

    What a splendid place. Give me a good source of coffee and pasta nearby and I’d never make it to Montauk. It looks up there with Shakespeare &co.

    Enviting-looking bookshop; how gorgeous. I’m fortunate to have a copy of that Brassai book: it’s full with beautiful creative and insightful shots of Paris’ heyday streetlife/nightlife in the 1930′s.
    I’m curiousabout the title of the book pulled out from the shelf in the 4th picture? I notice it’s maybe Japanese text on the cover. Ciao, L.

    I scan thrift stores for antique hard-covers, art, travel and photography books, I’ve cumulated a pretty nice collection. I bet the selection in Harpers is to die for.
