Along the banks of the Canal St.-Martin, a bright orange façade marks the location of Artazart, one of the most celebrated art and design bookstores in Europe. The company began as an online venture before opening this store in the 10th Arrondissement in September 2000. Inside, wooden shelves are lined with high-quality, reasonably priced books on a variety of art-related topics, including graphic design, photography, illustration, architecture, fashion, and graffiti. Most books are original English editions, although some are written in French. Artazart also has a gallery space that showcases the work of emerging artists from around the world.
