Town hall

Located on the river Seille in Burgundy, Cuisery is one of the towns that have established a reputation as a "book town" [2] or "village du livres". Antiquarian booksellers, used book sellers, printers, book binding artisans and small presses gravitated here. By 1999, the town's identity was forged as a center for books and artists.[3] Each month, typically during the first week of the month, there is a grand booksellers market. The town dates to the Middle Ages.[4]

Popular CultureEdit

  • The Little Paris Bookshop,[5] a work of romantic fiction by Nina George and translated by Simon Pare, includes a chapter describing a visit to Cuisery.[6]
