Behold, a busy and colourful painting of a quaint bookshop in the heart of Paris. With its iconic green and yellow storefront, it's hard to mistake the Shakespeare and Company book store. 

Originally called Le Mistral, this Parisian bookstore was built in 1951 by an American by the name of George Whitman, in a 16th-century monastery. His daughter, Sylvia, now owns and looks after the bookstore. 

Situated by the Seine and across from Notre Dame, this beautiful shop is known by book lovers and literary enthusiasts around the world.

Original painted using watercolour and India ink on cold-pressed watercolour paper. 

  • Printed using premium acid-free ink on lustre photo paper
  • Quality inks designed to last for 100+ years 
  • Prints are packaged in a clear poly sleeve with hardboard backing and shipped in a bubble mailer to ensure it is protected on its journey to you. 

Although I use high-quality paper and inks for the prints, it is recommended to keep them out of direct sunlight and to avoid keeping the print in very high or low temperatures. This will ensure its longevity so you can enjoy it for decades to come.
