Since opening in the spring of 2010, Bilderbox has been a welcome addition to Vienna's 7th district. Established by comic book buff Malte Steinhausen, Bilderbox offers a wide array of comics, art books, T-shirts and urban art supplies like spray paint and tag markers. The comic book selection is mostly of French and Belgian origin, but also includes Asian and American titles. During our visit we found a tidy little collection of books on street art, which offered an insider's perspective on this art form's particular aesthetic. Comic book traditionalists can rest assured that all big names are well represented at Bilderbox. These include Hayao Miyazaki, the creator of classics like Spirited Away or Howl's Moving Castle and Gilbert Shelton, the man behind the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers. Located next to the scandi fashion store Common People on the Zollergasse, Bilderbox catches your eye with its brilliantly colorful facade, which insiders will recognized as the work of German street artist Mesk. Alongside Runch and Inoperable, Bilderbox is Vienna's best address for comics and street art.Show lessRead more
