The phrase, "Beautiful books and ideas," painted on 0fr.'s storefront windows pretty much describes the overall spirit of this cult bookstore-and-gallery. Siblings Alexandre and Marie Thumerelle opened their shop in 1995, offering an ample stock of books and magazines on art, architecture, photography, fashion and music. It has since become a well-loved fixture in the Marais, attracting an assorted mix of local artists, designers, creative types, and the occasional wandering tourist. It's a tight squeeze between the books stacked on the floor and the overflowing shelves, but its eclectic collection is irresistible to any bibliophile and art-lover. An afternoon can easily be spent flipping through vintage or newly-issued magazines, rummaging through a trunk filled with postcards, or hunting down a limited edition art print to hang on your wall. Also an independent publishing house, 0fr. annually releases the much-anticipated Guide Paris, a curated handbook on the city's local scene, as well as prints in collaboration with artists and photographers. A door at the back of the shop leads to the gallery, a space  dedicated to weekly exhibits, performances and events.Show lessRead more
