The Librairie Itinérante is a tiny house that brings books to small towns in France where there are no local stores

In the era where you can get everything shipped to your home, more and more local stores are shutting down, including bookstores. One man, however, is looking to keep the spirit of the bookshop experience alive by bringing a bookstore on wheels to small towns across France.

Bookseller Jean-Jacques drives a specially-crafted tiny house, donned the Librairie Itinérante, with books for towns that have none, bringing readings and other book events with him. Built by French tiny house firm La Maison Qui Chemine, the store itself is 5.4m (17.7ft)-long, 2.5m (8f.2ft) wide and 4m (13ft) tall, costs €38,000 (or about $43,000) and holds about 700 pounds of books. The store also has a sleeping area for the traveling salesman, as well as running electricity and a compost toilet.
