Stowed away on a side street by Rosa-Luxemburg Platz, Pro QM is a bookstore run by book-lovers for book-lovers. It’s been long regarded as the city’s most fantastic collection of titles, including a top-notch selection of art, architecture and design books, which are the store’s primary focus.
The smallish, intimate bookstore provides enough reading material to keep interest piqued without overwhelming the reader with indifference; theory, pop literature and political discourse journals are plugged into the white-walled bookshelves while glossy magazines like Fantastic Man and Japanese publication Fun Palace lay strewn over steps and ladders. Pro QM is more reminiscent of your well-read friend’s extensive private library than a shop—meaning that the invitation to come over and browse the shelves always stands.
