Type: Bookstore — new books

Web site: http://www.la-hune.com/

Description: This bookstore is part of the history of Saint-Germain des Prés. Max Ernst, André Breton, poet Henri Michaux as well as hundreds of other artists through the decades have liked to come here. Push the door, next to the Café de Flore and head straight for the mezzanine, where all the art books are. You are almost sure to find anything you are looking for, even the most obscure title. It was renovated in 1992 by designer Sylvain Dubuisson. La Hune has been offered fortunes to sell and become another high end store like Cartier, Vuitton or Armani, its neighbors. (if you are hungry or want a good pastry, go to the nearby Monoprix. Take the escalator downstairs. The "M Café", which looks like a Terrence Conran store, has a nice design and great organic food + alovely plats du jour.

Update Summer 2016: The original librairie La Hune no longer exists. Now it is a cultural space belonging to Yellow Korner. The space houses a gallery and sells some art books, but no longer the wide variety of books as previously. (update by aileverte.)
