The trendy Cape Town suburb of Woodstock is known for its non-stop vibe and its undeniable character. It is a historical, cultural and entertainment hotspot, and is frequented by locals and visitors of all ages, who appreciate the many things to do and see within its invisible boundaries. One of its little treasures is Bibliophilia, a boutique bookshop that is modern, chic, and a little quirky.
But, Bibliophilia transcends the definition of any ordinary bookshop, and challenges avid readers, bookworms and those simply looking for a good holiday read to leave without an armful of papery delights. Owner, and fellow bookaholic, Xavier Nagel, is supported by a passionate team that not only appreciates great literature, but also love the cultural vibe and talent within both Cape Town and South Africa.
Genres on display range from wrestling and body art to gardening, social realism, history, illustration, and hobbies. So, readers with a variety of interests, investments and curiosities will be well rewarded when they browse the shelves of this unique little store.
Bibliophilia, the very name of which implies a very special love for literature, goes further than simply displaying and selling books. A number of exhibitions and book launches are held here, inviting visitors from the Mother City and around the world to explore various themes, meet new authors, and build on their literary collections. In addition, DVDs, music, memorabilia, and branded T-shirts are also available here, making the experience even more special.
