This is the second in an exclusive series of illustrated “Parisians in Profile” about Parisians from all walks of life, created by journalist Emma Jacobs. Here we feature Jérôme Callais, head of Paris’s Cultural Association of the Bouquinistes, the booksellers whose stalls line the Seine river. Filled with antiquarian books, vintage prints and postcards, these green stands are a centuries-old tradition and an iconic part of the Parisian landscape.
Quotes have been lightly edited for length and clarity.
