Alexandre & Marie Thumerelle

The hyperactive indie bookshop founders who are keeping it in the family

Brother and sister duo Marie and Alexandre Thumerelle set up their bookshop Ofr. with “zero francs” in the late 90s. Today Ofr. means “Open, Free, and Ready,” or “On Fire,” depending on the day and mood. The space is constantly reconfigured around their latest passions and projects, taking in exhibitions, catalogues, books, capsule collections, pop-up shops, gigs and festivals.
