Bookshop of the month: June

Het Fort van Sjakoo, in central Amsterdam, is named after a Dutch Robin Hood-type figure. Sjakoo famously escaped from prison and fled with his gang of thieves to a heavily fortified hide-out in central Amsterdam. The collective that runs the bookshop today have built their own anti-establishment fortress, providing a refuge for people interested in  anything that goes against the mainstream.

You can read more about their extraordinary story in this month’s bookshop profile.
