A new spot of color has blossomed at Alys Beach. The Fonville Press, named in honor of one of the area’s true gentlemen, John Fonville, has quickly become a gathering place for families and friends. Designed by Khoury & Vogt Architects, The Fonville Press is an international newsstand offering books, magazines, and newspapers from around the world. In addition to enriching the mind, you can tantalize the palate with a wide selection of imported beers and wines, as well as organic coffees, and tapas. According to Anne Hunter, proprietor of Fonville Press, “We wanted to create a special place for people to just enjoy each other. That’s what John Fonville is all about.
