10 of the Coolest Niche Bookstores From Around the World

Libreria il Mare, Rome

As its name suggests, this bookstore is exclusive dedicated to that most essential of all compounds — water. Stocked with non-fiction, academic books, maps, picture books and novels, all somehow relating to their topic (there are whole shelves devoted to books about pirates, you guys), it’s the kind of store you could submerge yourself in for hours. Just don’t drown. Photo via.
