As you might have guessed - we love magazines and books. But what we love even more are independent bookstores as a place, because we love to chat about books, love the smell of books and feel the paper, and love to flip through and read the first pages to understand if the cover holds what it promises. And while we truly enjoy beautiful interiors and to soak up the atmosphere, the heart of every bookstore is its selection and the people behind. Horst A. Friedrichs and Stuart Husband collected these stories in the beautiful photo book Buchhandlungen - Eine Liebeserklärung. And btw, we are in it, too. Buy...

Even though it feels kind of weird that a book about bookstores around the world is inspired by our little shop, it's also kind of cool ; )⁠ And while we still can't believe that we've been in business for more than ten years and perhaps played our part in giving independent publishing a voice, we really want to thank this rich world of print for being part of it and for surprising and inspiring us every day a new. With digital media alone, we would all quickly drown in our own bubble of algorithmic repetition.⁠ But fortunately there are tons of publications that deal with subculture, explore unpopular topics, show visual diversity, make people think, and push the boundaries of print. And fortunately there are independent publishers who are bold and courageous. And fortunately there are independent bookstores that dig through the thousands and thousands of new publications and pick out the unparalleled highlights to bring them to you. And fortunately there are you, too, who are hungry to be surprised and stimulated and astonished and inspired and enthralled.⁠ Happy to be part of this! Buy...
