Bookstores : A Celebration of Independent Booksellers

Explore the magic of independent bookstores in this beautiful photographic journey across the world.

Bookstores are treasure troves of knowledge and ideas, invaluable for the imagination, and often reflect their owners’ personalities in ways internet behemoths could never recreate. In this book, photographer Horst A. Friedrichs opens the door to the world of bricks-and-mortar bookstores, showcasing their variety, quirkiness, and vitality with lavish photography. It celebrates the passion and commitment of the owners with interviews and anecdotes. Explore William Stout Books, a specialty store for architecture and art books in San Francisco, and Baldwin’s Book Barn in Pennsylvania, a 5-story bookstore housed in a dairy barn open since the mid-1940s. Discover Gay’s the Word, the UK’s first and only dedicated LGBTQI bookshop and Livraria Lello, whose art deco interior is a temple to reading in the middle of Porto, Portugal. Some of the featured bookstores specialize in a certain genre, some are massive with vaulted ceilings, some are tiny and filled to the brim with books, some are in historic buildings that evoke a different time and place, and some are brand new, hightech, architect-designed spaces. What all the bookstores have in common is that they are all dedicated to spreading the written word to their communities. This is an ideal book for anyone who loves to read, browse, or simply linger in the analog world of books and bookstores.

Horst A. Friedrichs is a photographer whose work has appeared in the Independent, The New York Times, and Stern. He is the author of many books including Denim Style, Best of British, and Coffee Style (all by Prestel). He lives in London.

Stuart Husband is a London-based writer and travel journalist. He writes for titles such as »Monocle«, »Four Seasons«, »Robb Report«, and the Sainsbury’s magazines as well as for newspapers such as the »Telegraph«, »Observer«, »Sunday Times«, and the »Independent«.
