The best bookshop in the world? 

I’ve wanted to see Librairie des Alpes for a long time and on a recent weekend trip to Paris I was finally able to visit!  The almost 100 year old shop was opened in 1933 by Jean-Louis Vibert-Guigue and sells a collection of beautiful new and antique books, photographs and postcards, all with an alpine theme!
