Welcome to our website specialised in books and prints on the Lake Como and the Brianza area.
Although just virtually, it's as if you were in our bookshop as you can consult our catalogues and order any book you might be interested in, or send us your particular requirement. We aim to respond as soon as possible.
Our bookshop was founded in 1984 when the owner Alessandro, collector of antique books became a bookseller. Unfortunately we are not right in the centre of Como, but we are only five minutes' away and once you get here you'll probably find the books or prints that you've been looking for years.
Here you can find old books and prints, old postcards, all sorts of rarities, and other items, but our speciality is the local history of Como. Perhaps it may seem simplistic, but renowned personalities were born in this area like Pliny, Giovio, Alessandro Volta, Alessandro Manzoni, Giuseppe Parini and so on. Art and architecture have left us signs of great importance: with its Romanesque churches, the Neoclassical period with its villas and gardens, Rationalism and Abstractionism in Como and renowned figures such as Antonio Sant'Elia, Giuseppe Terragni, Manlio Rho and Mario Radice (just to name a few) - all this, together with the beautiful scenery of Lake Como and Brianza, has produced and continues to produce a huge amount of books and prints. Searching, discovering and selling them is our daily commitment, mostly thanks to our clients and friends whose interest gives us the energy and enthusiasm to continue.
