Books

Books have a soul, the soul of the person who wrote them and of those who read them and dream about them.

I stepped into the bookshop and breathed in that perfume of paper and magic that strangely no one had ever thought of bottling.

the echo of words

January 2, 2018

Once, in my father’s bookshop, I heard a regular customer say that few things leave a deeper mark on a reader than the first book that finds its way into his heart. Those first images, the echo of words we think we have left behind, accompany us throughout our lives and sculpt a palace in our memory to which, sooner or later – no matter how many books we read, how many worlds we discover, or how much we learn or forget – we will return.

its spirit grows

Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.

Raised among books

“I was raised among books, making invisible friends in pages that seemed cast from dust and whose smell I carry on my hands to this day”.
