Thanks to digital democratisation and applications like Instagram, photography has truly become a pastime with mass appeal. When people become passionate about the art, they go to the Tipi Bookstore to find unusual works about this artistic discipline.
Recreation vs. Art
The Tipi Bookshop opened in Saint-Gilles in May 2013. Andrea Copetti wanted his concept store to be a reflection of his photography work and of his experience in the publishing world. The wood-panelled shop offers curious patrons self-published photography books and books from independent publishers. Andrea is a passionate entrepreneur who is very serious about ensuring that his shop reflects the cultural activities he promotes on his Facebook page. And it's a great place to meet other photography buffs!
A gathering place
The tipi is the traditional conical (and iconic) tent of North American Indians known as a gathering place. The founder of Tipi Bookshop didn't choose the name by chance. In addition to being a sales outlet, the store is also a meeting place. Go in with a smile on your face!
I work as a fashion consultant, tear through the papers every morning, race off to concerts whenever I can and claim ""belgitude"" as a guarantee of original quality! My little extra: new shops, trendy concept-stores, organic restaurants and artists' workshops.
