More Gorgeous Bookstores to Visit!

June 1, 2017

If you didn’t catch this slideshow last December, here’s your chance to catch it now: photos of the world’s most beautiful bookstores, published by Architectural Digest at its website.

Photos of some of these bookstores have been featured in previous surveys, but many of them are new to me. It is slightly disturbing that almost all of these places, especially the gigantic ones, are located outside the U.S. – we need stores like this too!
