According to this article in The Guardian just before Christmas, there’s a bookshop in Japan that only stocks one book at a time – some classics, some contemporary works.
Owner Yoshiyuki Morioka explains how he came up with the concept: “Before opening this bookstore in Ginza, I had been running another one in Kayabacho for 10 years. There, I had around 200 books as stock, and used to organise several book launches per year. During such events, a lot of people visited the store for the sake of a single book. As I experienced this for some time, I started to believe that perhaps with only one book, a bookstore could be managed.”
This is pretty much as close to being the anti-Amazon as it gets!
