Here in Aix en Provence, the first Sunday of the month is the day of the book market in the Place de la Mairie, and as you can see today was no exception. So I ventured out into the heat of the day to have a little browse around, equipped with my camera and my fan, in a vain attempt to keep cool.
There are various pleasures to be enjoyed here-
admiring and browsing through the beautiful books,
being part of the general community of booklovers,
taking in the surroundings,
and of course the joy of finding old, yet beautiful publications,
complete with wonderful images inside.
