The "palm library" of Mr. Grumăzescu from Iaşi (ep. 2)
Mr. Grumăzescu is a craftsman, a great admirer of Eminescu and the owner of the Antiquarian Galleries in Lăpuşneanu street, number 24, Iasi. From the outside, everything seems old, dusty and without much interest. But everything changes as soon as you pass the threshold of the antiquarian. You are entering a new world and a new dimension, and Mr. Grumăzescu is always ready to introduce you.
Here I saw the smallest books and I mean size. The smallest measures 3 x 3 mm and contains all the poetry "Luceafarul". It was written on special paper and with kid's hair, and its reading can only be done under a microscope.
I was impressed by the "Palm Library", many small books that can be easily held in one palm.
Ask him about Eminescu and you will surely spend some good hours at the taifas. If you arrive in Iasi, go and pass the threshold of the Antiquarian Galleries of Mr. Grumăzescu. You will marvel at how many interesting things you will see and find out.
Below is a small photo gallery from Mr. Grumăzescu's antique shop.
