iPhone Photo of the Week: The Bookstore

Posted on Jan 17, 2011 | 1 comment

I admit it, I’m an art book junkie.  My bookshelves are overflowing and I always know it’s a dangerous game once I start perusing for books.  In Italy this addiction isn’t helped by the huge quantity of second hand book stalls, which are normally filled with old and difficult to find art books.  This one, for instance, is just two little tables set up outside the barber shop next to metro Cavour in Monti.  The monographs you can find here are great resources for images and often don’t cost very much.  I’m also a bit fan of the vendor in Trastevere by Piazza Sonnino and off of via Arenula in Piazza Cairoli.

  1. I’m a bit of an addict for travel books so I feel your pain 🙂 You’ve made me think that I should check out second hand book stores more often when travelling because who knows what can be found.
