Simon Foutaiz

Location : Bagneux,Paris.

Description : This is a private library located in the near south of Paris. I like both litterature, art, underground comics and computers, so my library is a little bit weird. I got a good collection of LPs too (but it's not allowed by the Self Shelf Swap system yet). I'm the guy who makes the technical stuff for this web site, so it can be very interresting to meet future contributors.
