Redu, Belgium, is a book village. But what happens when people stop buying so many books?

Over the Easter weekend of 1984, about 15,000 people came to Redu, viewing the purveyors of second-hand books and antiques that had sold from abandoned barns and sidewalk stalls. The booksellers decided to stay. Others soon followed, along with an illustrator, a bookbinder, and a papermaker. It’s an eclectic, countercultural mob. Young families also arrived, and new students sneaked into the run-down school.
