Few people manage to give up the pleasure of browsing a book.

The unique sensation of turning all the pages one after the other, the scent of ink on paper, the beauty of holding a novel in your hands or that of owning a publication full of images allowed the books to survive the digital revolution. In an age when tablets and ebooks are commonplace, books are still part of everyone’s life. Every day.
