Koenig Books – Covent Garden

koenig7

Koenig books hosts a collection of joyfully pretentious art books with beautiful covers and artistically out of focus photographs. It does have a huge selection though so if you do have £50 to burn on a book you will look through once then leave around to use as a coaster you will no doubt find something here. The basement houses all their less glamorous art books (the ones not published by Phaidon or Taschen) and collections of titles on each main stream artist and artistic movement which art students buy to plagiarize in their 3rd year thesis. Main reason I go is that the owner has a pet pug which is sooo cute.
