If you're reading Unmapped, it's fairly safe to assume that you're a lover of the written word. This issue, then, will be a treat for you.

Three French contributors, hopefully not mourning their national team's loss too hard today, explore the world of books for us: in The incredible story of Queer Ink, Noé Garel interviews the founder of India's leading counter culture publishing house; in If I were a bookshop, Allen Burkin dips back into childhood to reimagine what makes such places unforgettable, and in Shakespeare in Paris, Alexandra Breznaÿ visits my favourite bookshop in the world, Shakespeare & Co., on Paris's Left Bank.

Another of our stories happens in Paris this issue, but comes from a British writer. In The world's sexiest book club, Sarah Pugh finds out that just because you're invited to bring a book along, it doesn't necessarily mean that's what the conversation will be about.

And finally, from the high mountain passes of Pakistan, Will Buckingham remembers the impact a book can have on a person in Flesh and stones.
