A couple of days ago, I read on Paris Daily Photo's blog that bouquinistes were slowly becoming extinct in Paris. Bouquinistes are shopkeepers who are situated on the banks of the Seine river and usually sell old books and posters to passer-by. With huge bookstores opened, they are now an endangered species, which is a real pity because they are an integral part of Parisian life. What will become of stroll along the Seine banks without these booksellers? So I dedicate this post to them and pray that they will be able to guard their position as parisian landmark...
