Once upon a time...
Passionate about illustrated books, since 2017 our Berlin-based bookshop offers a fine selection of illustrated books, picture books and children's books in more than seven languages.
Our ambition: to make children and adults alike discover the pleasure of reading illustrated books, to support education in art and illustration, to transmit humanistic values that protect the great principles of equality, knowledge about the nature and the world. Books are the first mediums of awareness and promotion that enter homes, following the arrival of a child. We believe that choosing quality books contributes to educating enlightened children and thus making a difference for the future.
Reading beautiful books is also, in our opinion, the best way to encourage creativity and sensitivity in everyone. And we've also noticed the sensory pleasure it brings to everyone.
By choosing Totem's books selection, you make the choice to support independent booksellers and publishers, and you bring colour into your home!
