The CENTQUATRE-PARIS’ bookshop
Marie and Alexandra Thumerelle created 0fr. with zero francs in August 1996 in Paris. The brother-sister duo opened and closed more than 200 spaces worldwide before focusing on their gallery-bookshop in the Marais neighbourhood. For the last 20 years, they have proposed a large choice of art, design, fashion and architecture books, as well as rare and out-of-print books, and avant-garde magazines, organising two to three events a week.
0fr. also publishes books (exhibition catalogues, Bon Voyage, notebooks, diaries, etc.), creates clothes (artist T-shirts, canvas bags, etc.) as well as brands such as Brilliant, Pip and This Is Our Music. Since 2016, 0fr. is also an artistic residency in the South of France.
The story continues today at the CENTQUATRE-PARIS where they are opening their second Parisian bookshop.
