the bargain book shop
when a friend told me he was going to open a pop-up store in december, and it was going to be a shop for discounted illustrated books, i thought: oh that's going to be dangerous --- for me!
and it is indeed. i could spend hours browsing the architecture, art, design and photography books, leafing through their thick pages, mulling over which ones to get. i'm really quite partial to some steidl books i have seen, and some architecture tomes, and a book on japanese art, and... most of them are half price, which makes it very difficult to stay reasonable. you may well set out to get a xmas present and end up sneaking in an extra book (or two) for yourself into the shopping bag.
good to know: the books are from all over the world, a big proportion of them in english.
the shop is open one month only (until dec 31, 2011). don't miss it!
find it here: the bargain book shop, immanuelkirchstr. 33, 10405 berlin (prenzlauer berg), open mon-sat 12-20h (sun closed), closest station: tram M2, knaackstrasse, the shop's website, on facebook
