Over the past weeks, I have been sharing my book loot from Europe. This week, I am excited to share the ones I found in Prague. It is my second time to visit this gorgeous city, and I just fell in love even more.
There are multiple branches of this retail bookstore around Prague. Unfortunately, I could not for the life of me remember any longer where, exactly, this one is located since we just happened to chance upon the place. I did manage to buy three nice books. I told myself that since they’re pretty tiny, it should be alright lugging them around.
Stoupání na horu by E. T. Seton and Pavel Čech, O Klíči by Pavel Čech, Dobrodruzství Pavouka Čendy by Pavel Čech. Looks like Čech is quite a popular artist in Prague.

As I was buying the books, I saw Gorey and I hyperventilated and ended up buying another book: The Recently Deflowered Girl by Edward Gorey under the pseudonym of Hyacinthe Phypps.
