A bookish photo tour of Marseille...

"... Marseille, a fact to be strongly smelt and tasted, lay broiling in the sun one day" Charles Dickens description of Marseille in the opening chapter of Little Dorrit (1857)

Booksellers in the Places des l'Huiles 'Happy Market'

The street bookshelves of Le Panier district

Promotion for the forthcoming 'Lire en short' Festival of Fiction

A great art and design book shop on the 3rd floor of Le Corbusier's Cite Radieuse development

Chateau d'If is a crucial setting in Alexandre Dumas Le Comte de Monte Christo and can be seen just off the coast of the city

Love these guidebook/fiction mash ups created by SNCF and Le Monde. This one is La bas c'est Marseille by Jeremie Guez
