A Venitian Bookstore

I am always on the lookout for interesting bookstores and found a quirky one, unexpected and decorated with humor called the Acqua Alta which means high water, something that occurs more and more in Venice. They mostly sell used bookd from what I could see and a few books in English but I didn’t find anything I wanted to read. Maurice found two though. The bookstore is said to be owned by a fun and flirtatious man but there were only a few young women working when we were there.

The entrance full of old, ruined books.

As you can see, it is very crowded with very narrow aisles.

Boats and old gondolas were used as book shelves of a sort.

And the fire exit leads right into the canal.
