“The Most Beautiful Bookshop in the World”

A whole lotta books, Venice, Italy.  Canon EOS 40D, f/4, 1/40s, ISO 1600, 24-105@24mm.

Time for an older photo to spice things up a bit.  This is a look inside a little place in Venice, Italy which bills itself as “the most beautiful bookshop in the world” (written on a handmade sign out front).  It’s definitely one of the most unique.  The entire shop is just jammed packed with books that are in piles with no discernible regard for organization.  Some of the piles are actually inside of old wooden boats, as you can see for the closest stacks in this pic.  The coolest part of the shop is the back entrance which opens directly onto a canal!  You can just pull up in your boat and go inside for some shopping.

    I’ve been there! recognised it in a second. I was there in August this year and it looks exactly the same.
