Our Concept

I have always imagined that PARADISE will be a kind of library (Jorge Luis Borges) .

With this in mind, it is our ambition to assist you in creating and expanding your own paradise.

In these times of growing virtualisation, leading to the loss of the tactile experience of actually holding a book in your hand, we would like to show you the way to reawaken your pleasure in collecting, owning, and feeling the joy of this gradually vanishing experience. Through “our” love of books and artworks we hope to show you the way. We believe that the history of a book is much more stimulating than listing formats, page numbers, and bibliographic references. It is our claim “to stimulate pleasure in reading … aided also by our colorful catalogue design” (FAZ, February 20, 2010), based on our long years of experience and knowledge.
If this concept should rouse your interest, we would welcome you not only as a consignor or buyer, but also as a partner. Do not hesitate to share your opinions and thoughts, your suggestions, praise or criticism with us.
