Come to these markets on a weekend and you'll find tourists and Parisians alike sizing up exotic stamps and ancient books, unrolling an original poster for some obscure 1960s German arthouse film, or leaving through pages yellowed by time and stained with tea. Some come to emulate famous former patrons – Hemingway, Fitzgerald – others, to find an item that even the Internet can't provide, or simply to browse. A quietly captivating way to spend an afternoon.
