it's called Old Bookshop.
Not THE Old Bookshop.....just Old Bookshop.
I find treasures here....great books...postcards...maps and other assorted ephemera.
A few years ago I stopped in and I hit the big bonanza....an entire shelf of books about Venice.
Evidently some family member had passed onto bluer lagoons...and the survivors weren't as enamored of Venezia.
Guess who bought almost allllll of them?
Love Affair - A Venetian Journal by Wright Morris is one of these gems.
The book was published in 1972...(I checked and you can still find some back copies.)
I love the layout of this book.....a photo on the right and a journal entry on the left.
One thing that I don't like...there are no captions on the images..... some of the places in the photos will always have to remain a mystery to me....sigh!
I'm surprised at some of the changes in Venice since 1972.
Some are subtle....more cats...laundry hanging in areas other than eastern Castello...tables loaded with souvenirs, instead of the rolling monsters that now take their place...BUT one big change I notice.
The buildings were in much worse shape....crumbling seemed to be the norm.
That's one change that I have to admit is for the better.
