With a special focus on illustrated books – from comic books to graphic novels and children’s literature – La Regulière on the 18th arrondissement’s lively rue Myrha houses a plethora of treasures, mostly published independently. Their comprehensive, colourful selection includes French cartoonist Riad Sattouf, visual artist Catherine Meurisse and Liv Strömquists’s excellent comic – ‘L’Origine du monde’. Plus, prices are wallet-friendly, with cartoons from €3 and kids books from €4.
Regulière also doubles up as a pretty cafe where you can munch biscuits, attend workshops, and admire the latest exhibitions – and the furniture’s even built by the owners themselves. All in all, a welcoming, user-friendly place open to anyone and everyone.
