Most bookworms share a sense of guilt about switching from physical page-turners to easy-reading e-books. But, at some point, comfort and convenience tend to override sentimental nostalgia. At least the coffee table book has stood the test of time, and at David Krut Bookstore in Parkwood, a generous chunk of the gallery floor space is dedicated to glossy tomes on visual art, photography, design and artist collections. Just because you're not feeling the paper folding underneath your fingertips when spending an afternoon on the couch with Ernest Hemingway doesn't mean you can't still indulge in the age-old tradition of turning to actual books for pleasure.


An art bookstore.
It's where you can buy a book on William Kentridge's collection.
