Thousands of easy-to-find bookshops are concentrated in the great cities of the world - London, New York, Paris, Los Angeles, Sydney and Berlin – but there are also countless sellers located in places that take some finding. Remote islands, tiny villages, small towns that are barely a speck on the map and locations so isolated that they don't even count as a hamlet. Enjoy our selection of bookshops off the beaten path:
