Librairie Peinture Fraiche
It is against all marketing principles but it works very well. No online sales, not even a website and only selling the books that he personally likes. For over 27 years Ben is running his nice bookshop in Brussels. The first five years he only sold second hand art books. Now he has this extensive collection of books on Architecture, Beaux-Arts, Graphical Art and Photography. I think it’s the calm and stylish atmosphere combined with the well chosen collection that does the trick. If you like this kind of books then I highly recommend this place.
I bought Akira Kurosawa, Master of Cinema by Peter Cowie.
