37 Rue de la Bûcherie
75005 Paris,
M° Saint-Michel

Located on the Left Bank of the Seine facing Notre-Dame, the bookshop sits on a tiny little square festooned with string lights. On the left, a wooden bench for readers sits in front of the shop’s antiquarian book department. And next to that is the café that Sylvia opened in 2015, fulfilling a dream George had had since the 1960s. And you might see the shop dog, Colette, or the adopted stray cat, Aggie, hanging about.
