The book that caught my eye in the window? It looked like a grimoire that might start speaking to me at any moment. Truthfully, although the inside pages were blank, I'm not too sure what it might be used for besides a conversation piece. I was quite enamored but with an 89 Euro price tag it seemed a bit much to pick up on a whim.
These two were inside the store and I snapped the pic before I was asked not to take pictures.
Note of interest: When I asked Google to translate "Pays de Poche" it gave me "Pocket Countries" ... a little disappointing so I am convinced that somehow it means something much more whimsical.
An honorable mention goes to this little store. Unfortunately I didn't take a picture of the store's name and have no idea where it was located in our many walks but the display window caught my attention - as it should. The books were held up in, what seemed to me, quite a charming, old fashioned way ... thumbtacks with string holding the books in place.
After I snapped the pic and started to walk away I turned back only to notice the proprietress changing the display in the second window. There she stood with the display window open to the street, her bag of books sitting on the sidewalk as she changed out the selections on offer. I found it charmingly old school.
