Containing some seriously rare books and series, Unterwegs attracts the many photography and architecture enthusiasts to be found in Berlin, particularly creatives looking to inspire their own work. In the inviting but pared down, well-lit gallery style space, many of the books are given the status of art objects with individual shelves and exhibition-style presentation. Surek Becker started off as a passionate collector who sold to remote customers and wanted to give people the joy of discovering new books that they may not have found online. In 2002, she found her Torstrasse shop which now allows her to connect with her clientele, hold photography exhibitions, and show off some hard-to-find limited editions. Highlights include the Baedeker travel series in many different languages dating from the 1830s to the 1940s, a well stocked section on DDR architecture, and a wealth of Berlin-related publications. The Unterwegs brochure can be picked up in the store or found online.Show lessRead more
