Given that one hardly purchases paper books any more, given the advent of technology, a visit to atlantis fills one woth nostalgia. The store is cosy. It is quaint and full of character. Rated among the top ten in the world, it is easy to...More

Such a lovely bookstore - lots of first editions. If you've read the Vanity Fair article then you'll know what a treat of a place this is. Good luck to all who run it.
