The best art bookstore in Brussels has moved. It used to occupy a beautiful Art Nouveau building facing the Eglise de la Sainte-Trinité in Ixelles. Now it is located in a more modest interior close to Place Flagey.
The new shop, which opened a few weeks ago, still smells of peinture fraîche (wet paint). The interior is more intimate, less sprawling. But as stylish as ever. The focus is on art, photography, architecture, design and nature.
It is still by far the best place in town to pick up a gorgeous art edition, a rare photo book or a creative design magazine.
