Last time I spent a few days in Oslo, Norway, a friend of mine who lives in the city, showed me this absolutely amazing little alternative bookstore named Tronsmo; it’s one of those shops that you can’t believe your lucky star that you found out about.
I personally feel it is important to support those kind of bookstores. The owners and staff put so much effort into handpicking those hard to find titles which you otherwise wouldn’t even know existed.
Tronsmo carries fiction litteratur from East Asia, India, Africa, Latin America and Middle East. They have a fantastic assortment of books that discusses film, music, design, photography and art, and non-fiction social commentary litterature that critisize, debates and bring up dialogue about such topics as globalism and politics.
There is also a small but very nice assortment of travel litterature titles ( I bought a handful of titles from the Wallpapers City Guide books, a book series which I absolutely love.)
And last but not least, their comic book and graphic novel assortment are very impressive.
Tronsmo is located on Kristian Augustsgate 19 (5 min walking distance from Karl Johans Gata)
Check out their official website: Tronsmo.no where you also can purchase books.
