Comic shop Lambiek, Amsterdam

Stuff I love: Lambiek.

I first visited Lambiek in the late 1980s – and I don’t think it’s changed much since. It’s a large shop (certainly by Dutch standards), with bookshelves, tables, and display racks groaning under the weight of a HUGE number of Dutch, English and French comics and graphic novels, new, second-hand and collectable.

The guys who run the place obviously love comics, and they are always happy to recommend something new and unexpected. Lambiek, to me, is what a shop should be – personal, run by passionate people, and full of books.
