Books in Insadong

books ad infinitum

A few years ago, while living in Seoul, I spent many Sunday afternoons in Insadong, an artsy Korean neighborhood filled with teahouses, art boutiques, a green tea ice cream shop, and several book shops. This one was my favorite, filled to the brim with books stacked in every free space. Today, a rainy Sunday in Amsterdam, I’d like to be in Insadong and stroll the streets. I’d get a cup of plum tea then go to this book shop and run my fingers over the books to disturb the inevitable layer of fine dust.
