|Marian Goodman Bookshop - Paris|
Next Tuesday January 24, New York’s Marian Goodman Gallery will open a second Paris space which will house exhibitions and a bookstore. Located at 66 rue du Temple in the city’s Marais district the new space significantly expands Goodman’s Paris presence. The bookstore at the new address will offer a selection of books, exhibition catalogues, printed matter and artist's editions. The store is situated almost opposite the dealer’s other gallery at 79 rue du Temple. The original gallery is inside the Hôtel de Montmor, a 17th-century hotel particulier. It has occupied that space since 1999.
The other Parisian gallery bookshop that is always worth a visit is the Yvon Lambert Booshop. The bookshop opened in 2001 and is managed by Bruno who has excellent taste. They present a selection of art books, exhibition catalogues, artists books, rare and out of print books, limited edition prints, posters, DVDs, CDs, t-shirts and art objects. Well worth a visit at 108 rue Vieille du Temple in the Marais. You can check out their website HERE. Although the Yvon Lambert Gallery closed a couple of years ago the bookstore is a reminder of the importance of M. Lambert in the International art scene.
Last but not least is the Pompidou Center bookstore. With around 10,000 titles and no less than 300 art magazines and reviews Flammarion is one of the best bookstores for modern art, architecture and design plus an incredible selection of photobooks.
