Bookshop - 2

We popped into Papasotiriou bookshop on Panepistimiou Street  having read that it is featured in 'Bookshops: long established and the most fashionable ones', by Hatttstein and Braun.

Designed by Manolis Kolokythas, it spans 3 floors and is 869 sq. metres.

A huge mural by the tills is a reminder of Greece's ancient past

a closer look

black marble and stark metal give it a stylish look

severe elegance

endless shelves and rows of books

wooden floors and leather armchairs

where you can read a book and have a view

of the University

leather sofas

an environment that celebrates books

a temple to reading

any wall space that is not covered with books has something else interesting to look at

A real delight.
