Give me a bookstore to explore and I am the happiest man in the world. Well, that’s probably not true; those that know me know that I’m not the happiest of anything at any given time, but I digress … or wallow. You pick.
This is Daunt Books on Marylebone in London. London is such a great bookstore town. I think if I lived there I could do one bookstore a week and go for months without duplicating myself. This is an old-school one, in a lovely area. It reminds me a little of the old Rizzoli Bookstore on 57th St. in New York City: deep, dark, rich wood shelves, impeccable layout, very high-end and stately. Some of my other favorites in London are Foyles (of course) on Charing Cross Road, and Waterstones’ flagship store off Piccadilly Circus, which is huge.
