Do you know literature Moths?  This is one of my favourite book stores in Munich.

Yesterday on my way to the Container collective, I walked into Literature moths and wandered around to see what the store curators had selected for us.

Why do I call the book store owner and their staff curators?  I give them this title because they select books they personally like rather than books they think we will like.  This idea means that the books available within this store are not just mainstream.  They have small publishers, art books and interesting small gift products that blend in with their eclectic book selection.

Because German is not my first language, I tend to avoid reading in German for fun but I could not stop myself from purchasing the following:
