Librairie 7L

In a city filled with innumerable bookstores, French and English, Librairie 7L still manages to add something special. The creation of the oh, so something Karl Lagerfeld, the store is filled with mostly coffee table type tomes with glossy, beautiful photographs, in the fields of art, architecture and design-but in the widest sense, including landscape design, fashion, textiles, art deco furniture makers and all ranges of photography. Being the concept of Lagerfeld the photography and fashion sections are particularly dense and varied. The store appears well curated and well attended to-each section having a range of material and subject matter that is not found just anywhere-with smaller publications in the mix as well as larger productions such as Rizzoli and Actes Sud. Hours are to be had browsing-perhaps a good idea for this weekend if the threat of rain turns real. Librairie 7L, 7, rue de Lille. No website.
