2. Van Der Velde

"I loved this book store so much, I will drive back from Germany just for this shop because they had so many amazing Dutch and English interiors magazines and tons of English books - as a native English speaker I was in HEAVEN. The prices were good and also the staff were incredibly friendly and English-speaking too. One cashier left the register to help my son find a book, and was so kind to him. I was so impressed by the customer service and overall selection in this book store - wonderful!"

11. Artistiek Bureau

"At the beginning of 2019, Nick ter Wal, formerly the youngest clerk at antiquarian Fokas Holthuis, started his own online antiquarian Artistic Bureau from an attic in Groningen. Artistic Bureau buys and sells literature in first and special editions, unique copies and archives. The offer is not everyday, but shows the cherry in the pie of the mostly Dutch literature. Nick not only offers exceptional editions of excellent quality. In its regularly updated range and well-documented catalogues, you will often find gems that you did not know existed, but that you would like to add to your own collection immediately. Independently active for just six months, Artistic Bureau, which saw books from the range go to the Koninklijke Bibliotheek in The Hague, is already a significant factor."
