Torino 1.1 : Books, Books, Books

A Bookseller in his Shop : Torino, IT

Maya and I finally were able to travel to Torino, Italy, to visit Maya's father's aunt, Marcella. The drive takes one over the French Alps, through the Mont Blanc tunnel, along the Aosta Valley into the Piedmont, and on to Torino--host city for the 2006 Winter Olympics.

The Bookseller : Torino, IT

Torino is a city of books. Arcades are lined with book sellers, the piazzas are dotted with bookstores, and one of Torino's best kept secret is il Circolo dei Lettori. I'll feature the last one in a separate post only because it's so fantastic! In the meantime, a couple of shots of the world of books as seen in Torino.
