This is the beginning of several talks we dedicated to antique book markets in different European countries and cities. We start with some book markets in Moscow and the Netherlands (mainly the market in The Hague).
Went to Haarlem today for the annual book market - Boeken in de Bavo. The market itself is quite nice, 75 sellers (or something like that), quite a diverse choice of books. But what's makes this fair really special is the astonishing location!
We went to Belgium recently. Of course, I cannot miss anything related to books (especially old books). That's why when my wife and my grandfather went to see the Saint Bavo's Cathedral in Ghent, I spent an hour in the Saint Nicholas' Church. Where, as it appears, every second Saturday there is a book market.
