Read slowly: Ler Devagar bookstore

Ler Devagar (meaning 'read slowly') is three storeys of new and secondhand books in Lisbon, Portugal. A mammoth old printing press (the building was originally a factory, built in 1846) is at the centre of the bookstore and now houses a cocktail bar.

It's a clever celebration of the historical, haphazard, romantic and tactile nature of our ongoing relationship with print.
