Photoblog: Photo #71 - The antique book/art shop

On my way from work I often walk past a shop on Haarlemmerstraat that sells old books and works of art. I’ve never been inside the shop, but from what I see in the show window, the art on offer ranges from old lithographs of Amsterdam to rare prints to cubist paintings. Their prices are scribbled in pencil on the white margins of the cardboard frames that these works are usually mounted on. Most works tend to start from 250 € onwards. That doesn’t stop them from flying off the shelf within days though. Especially if it’s a reproduction of Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe. You can probably still make it out despite heavy processing by Waterlogue.
