ANTI PUBLIC LIBRARY | A Haven for Rare Art Books and Vinyl Enthusiasts

In the heart of Paris’ vibrant Le Marais district lies a groundbreaking fusion of culture and indulgence: the ANTI PUBLIC LIBRARY. Nestled amidst the charming labyrinth of galleries and bookstores, this avant-garde establishment emerges as a beacon for connoisseurs seeking a distinctive blend of literary treasures and auditory delights.

Led by visionary artist Henri Levy, the mastermind behind Enfants Riches Deprimes, the ANTI PUBLIC LIBRARY emerges as a testament to Paris’ enduring legacy as a cultural epicenter. Situated adjacent to the brand’s flagship store, this novel concept transcends conventional boundaries, inviting patrons into a realm where literature intertwines with libations and vinyl resonates with artistic expression.

Its interior is well-appointed with French mid-century furnishings that feature the graceful curves of Le Corbusier to the iconic designs of Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand. But it’s not just the aesthetics that captivate; it’s the curated offerings that set ANTI PUBLIC LIBRARY apart as a sanctuary for discerning tastes.

The hybrid store-bar entices with a selection of natural wines, Japanese sake, and American coffee. They also have Russian caviar, served alongside créme fraiche and artisanal potato chips, elevating the experience.

Yet, the literary treasures and musical rarities truly steal the spotlight. ANTI PUBLIC LIBRARY boasts an unparalleled collection of printed gems, featuring releases by luminaries such as American artist Wallace Berman and exclusive zines from Enfants Riches Déprimés. Explore the visual narratives captured in photography titles by Jean Prouvé and immerse yourself in the eclectic soundscape curated from original pressings spanning genres like noise, post-punk, industrial, shoegaze, and new wave.

For those eager to embark on a journey of discovery, the ANTI PUBLIC LIBRARY is located at 77 Rue Charlot. The store is closed on Mondays and is open from 11:00 AM – 8:00 PM on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 12:00 PM – 9:00 PM from Thursday to Saturday, and 11:00 AM – 7:00 PM on Sundays.
