PTYX La Librairie Belgium

PTYX La Librairie BelgiumOne of the newest contenders in our Beautiful Bookstores series is Belgium’s La Librairie PTYX, which opened its doors in the fall of 2012. Located just a few steps from Place Flagey in Ixelles (a Brussels municipality), La Libraire PTYX is famed for its dictionary-esque façade featuring images and brief bios of some of authors whose books are held within.

As an independent bookstore, La Librairie PTYX offers a wide variety of literature, with a focus on facilitating conversation and the exchanging of views. The bookstore often welcomes authors to hold talks and book signings, and bills itself as a “library of meetings and exchanges.” In line with these ideals, La Librairie PTYX has an oft-updated blog with stories focusing on art, culture and the state of the independent bookstore.
