Bookshops in the middle of the sea

Bookshops in the middle of the sea
When you are the bookseller of an island, miles and miles of sea from the nearest bookshop, the most fun pastime on the beach is peeking at the readers and seeing what books they read. You recognize the cover, you know that you recommended it to him, then you peek behind the book to see the reader's face and you recognize him, you recognize each other, a knowing look, a greeting and the satisfaction of both of you at having made the right choice.
But the most beautiful image was one day, at the dead sea, an enchanting place, sheltered from the sun, in a cave overlooking the most beautiful emerald sea there is, a mother reads the child King aloud, a book we like a lot. They took it the previous evening and, knowing that that beautiful moment is also thanks to us, makes us feel good... ah, what a great job carrying the books everywhere!

Ottimo Massimo è il cane bassotto di Cosimo Piovasco, il barone rampante di Italo Calvino, che dà il nome alla nostra libreria.

Il disegno di Ottimomassimo, che ci accompagna alla scoperta del sito, è stato un regalo di Vladimir Radunsky.
