The most beautiful bookstore I've ever seen, containing a staircase that I can only describe as 'luscious',- Imagine that. I'd never really think of luscious and staircase in one thought, normally.
The bookstore is Lello and Irmao, in Oporto, Portugal. If I'm ever in Portugal, I'll definitely be going there. Mmm, a fine vintage port, a cafe overlooking the harbour, and a good book.
Thanks to the photographers who posted these images elsewhere, I apologise for not crediting you, in return, you're free to steal any of mine... But I recommend readers, wanting to see more, googling to find them.
