To Look At Any Thing

My task which I am trying to achieve, is by the power of the written word, to make you hear, to make you feel - it is before all, to make you see.
That - and no more, and it is everything.
Joseph Conrad

The " A book shop " in Quigney owned and managed by one of the friendliest ladies I have ever met . A place to find beautiful antiquarian books.

And there is plenty of them on the tiniest space.

To look at anything
To look at any thing,
If you would know that thing,
You must look at it long:
To look at this green and say
" I have seen spring in these Woods," -will not do - you must
Be the thing you see:
You must be the dark snakes of
Stems and ferny plumes of leaves,
You must enter in
To the small silences between
The leaves,
You must take your time
And touch the very peace
They issue from
John Moffitt

25 square meters at most and more books than you can ever read in a life time

A place where you can spent the whole saturday morning.
