While exploring Venice on a recent Summer holiday, we stumbled across a marvelous bookshop which had a sign outside boldly proclaiming it to be “The World’s Most Beautiful Bookshop”. Well it might be right. Inside it was wall to wall glorious chaos, which really made you feel like you could dive in and discover some wonderful and exciting book which up until that point you never knew you needed. It was fascinating and compulsive and you really could spend hours in there. At the back they had created a staircase out of old books which one of their cats had made home.
