Papiers-Gras bookstore

Located on the first floor of an old building, the bookstore Papiers-Gras is surrounded by the lake. You might feel a bit isolated although the world is all around you. Time stops… You will reach the bookstore by a spiral staircase decorated with graffitis here and there. Imagination is the queen of this kingdom. Hundreds of artists have imagined words or drawings which are gathered here. Sometimes, behind the counter, Roland Margueron stands: he’s the founder of the bookstore / gallery since 1987. And a year goes by according to the rhythm of exhibitions, book signings and other cultural events. Swiss authors, international artists and the Biggest names of the comic industry are available right here… waiting for a new kingdom or a new king…
Thank you Thenmh for this discovery and sorry it took me so much time to share it with our readers.
