Gorgeous Bookstores to Visit

Funny how things in your life just kind of come together and make sense. For years I worked with architects and engineers, always in marketing and business development, but the part of my job that I loved the most was working with the design whether it was buildings, photography, or graphic design. And now I am putting it together for myself, learning how to draw and paint. This article caught my eye because of the stunning architecture and because it is a bookstore (love a good one). What a great use of a church and one I would gladly visit weekly.

Check out Flavorwire’s The 20 Most Beautiful Bookstores in the World.

The Selexyz Bookstore in Maastricht, Holland, is a converted Dominican church.

  3. WOW! what a great reuse. Wouldn’t you just love to go and camp out there. I’m afraid I might be distracted from reading with my head turned up to stare at the beautiful ceiling. Thanks for posting this.
