Set in and around his summer home in the Lot region of France, where he hosts a seasonal artist residency, the results of which feed into shows back at Paris bookshop Ofr., a North Marais icon (est. 1996) that’s long been a magnet for the city’s creative set. Features recipes contributed by resident artists, ideas for perfect lazy picnics and a homage to the slow and collective ways of country living. Only available online here!

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.
