This year the Bookshop Camille Sourget had once again the privilege to represent bibliophily at the Biennale Paris, the not-to-be-missed event of the art market, which took place from 8 until 16 September.
It was the perfect opportunity for us to show our most beautiful books in a wonderful spot, this year decorated by the talented Jean-Charles de Castelbajac.
Amongst our treasures were visible a sumptuous Venetian binding on a dogale made in Venice in 1597 which earned the price of the second most beautiful artpiece of the fair, as well as an exceptional collection of Piranesi’s works in 27 volumes with 1189 amazing engravings.
Their presence was noted, as reflected in this insight of a few press articles mentioning them:

We wish you a pleasant read and hope to see you soon on the various fairs we will take part in, but also at our bookshop located rue de Seine in Paris, where we will welcome you with open arms!
