Everyone knows that books are priceless due to the gem of wisdom hidden beneath the content. Librarie Librissime takes this adage one step further by making the book, as an object, a gem in itself. Each copy of Pauline van Lynden’s Rajasthan, for instance, is wrapped in a unique vintage Rajasthani shawl.
There are thousands of books to choose from, each categorized according to publisher. Anne-Laure Quilleriet’s The Leather Book, for example, can be found under the Assouline section. This 400-page anthology contains over 300 coloured illustrations of leather through all of its fashionable manifestations. Offering a 20th century history of leather, readers can learn about its evolution from the leather jacket to aviator gear to thigh boots. From anthologies to travel guides and recipe books, there is something here for everyone. While most of the books are in French and English, other languages are also available.
This bookstore offers more than just books. An assortment of scented candles, known as book candles, offer that special library feel when lit. Other items, such as bookshelves and suitcases are also available. Being family-owned, service at the bookstore is friendly and intimate. If you’re looking for coffee table books, collector’s items or even gift ideas, the staff is able to help with suggestions. Don’t miss out on this unique bookstore. Librarie Librissime is filled with some of the best books around! The slogan of Librissime is that you'll find "sublimissimes" books and objects from 9$ to 999 999$.
