Last week in Switzerland we stumbled upon a wonderous book store along the cobbled streets of Zurich’s Old Town. The Orell Füssli Krauthammer was opened in 2001 and contains a world class collection of books on arts, design, photography and architecture. From within the store you can travel in time and space – from Berlin’s new architecture to India’s prostitutes to Brooklyn’s streets to Japan’s artists.

What makes the store so superb is, because the stgore is Swiss, they stock books in French and German (and English, Japanese and so on) and this leads to an extensive rich and diverse collection beyond a store normally found in, say, London or LA. For example., within the architecture section you can delve into monographs, town planning, interior design, landscape design, building construction and building development.
