Book stalls line up the footpath on college street in Kolkata (Calcutta), West Bengal, India. While many large Bengali publishers are situated on college street, there are many small kiosks selling old books. It is the largest second-hand book market in the world and the largest book market in India. Known as ‘boipara’ (locality of books) in the local Bangla language, it is frequented by students and tourists alike.
