Librairie Alain Brieux (Weekend Reflections # 548)

Paris, France

I think this is concave mirror. The reflections appear small and upside-down. Last month after a nice lunch, my friend Arnaud (kwarkito) showed me some amazing shops. This one was small but amazing. I guess you could call it a curiosity shop. It had all sorts of interesting things from old books to antique medical devices. It even had petrified dinosaur eggs!

Happy reflecting!

Oui c'est vraiment un bon souvenir que cette balade et c'était un plaisir pour moi de te faire découvrir des endroits insolites, pour que tu y fasses de bonnes photos comme celle-ci. Te souviens tu, je te disais que Paris était dépeuplé parce qu'il n'y avait pas de touristes asiatiques. Aujourd'hui, la rue Jacob est hors de mon périmètre, et je me demande quand je reverrai cet endroit si curieux. J'espère que tout va bien pour toi.

Such shops are wonderful to browse through. There is a shop in Phoenix, AZ that also has unique objects like scorpions and tarantulas in paperweights as well as other biological things.

Macabre but brilliant! How is it there - I heard they put the homeless in recreation centers ....

A fantastic view of the bookshop - I would have been in heaven in a place like that. Thanks for a view with a difference, James. And thanks for taking him there, Arnaud.

How much are the dinasaur eggs? I'd like to have one to test beside my Mt. St. Helena hardened lava dust egg.

On appelle ça un "cabinets de curiosités"; c'est quand on collectionne toutes sortes de choses bizarres; un genre de boutique à trésors.. :)

Super eclectic reflection James, I can imagine spending time with Kwarkito would be fascinating, I'm sure he knows all the fabulous quirky shops that Paris has to offer.
