Bouquinistes in Paris - Jean-François Cachot





Yesterday, I took these photographs of a bouquiniste stand (french term for second-hand books open air resellers), in Paris, near the Cathedral Notre Dame... They are more than 200 to sell books, comics, mags, postcards (and more and more often, Eiffel towers, caps and tee shirts as souvenirs!)... But this one is very special, I know him for, maybe, 25 years ! He's specialized in popular literature, sci-fi, comics... He's one of the few to remain open all year long since 40 years! Big up to Jean-François Cachot! And his portrait is here! He's located Quai de la Tournelle, in front of rue de Pontoise, close to Notre Dame.

Ah oui je vois qui c'est maintenant, mais j'ai jamais rien acheté chez lui... dommage qu'une partie de ses bouquins soient complètement jaunis...

This is awesome, when I visit Paris I will most definitely attempt to find this stand. Thank you for sharing that, it's great!
