hard cover...




i love a bookshop, all those hard covers with stunning images and capturing typography wanting me to pick up and peruse its pages, willing me to buy. i must admit i buy lots of books just because i love the look of them, more than the necessity of needing them. obviously my favourite choice of book has to do with interiors and design, i have several beautiful cook books with recipes to impossible to try, gorgeous books on photography and fashion, full of inspiring images and ideas.

although large bookshops are dying out thanks to internet shopping and the option of downloading books on your tablets, you'll still find small, intimate, charming bookshops pop up here and there. personally there is nothing better than to actually hold a book in your hands. the touch and smell of the paper could never be replaced... 




are you like me and love a good bookshop? what kind of books do you love?
