What I found interesting about this bookstore was what it depicted in its windows. For example there is a book that is titled Art and Queer Culture, which is the first major historical survey to consider the ways in which the codes and cultures of homosexuality have provided a creative resource for visual artists.
This alley is located between two seventeenth century hotels. What is especially interesting is that although the alley is the sight of the assassination of the duc of Bourgogne in the middle ages, hotels were still build over the old road.
What I liked most about this picture was that the store was being built, showing how le Marais was changing and becoming more of a commercial space. I also liked the quote on the window about how shopping helps the economy because it fits in with the commercial spirit le Marais now has.
I found this mosaic on the sign of a store and I thought it was interesting that this had been set in to the building, becoming a part of the structure itself.
