Amazing Libraries & Bookstores

“Imagine the shape and volume of a normal bookstore turned up on its side. This place was absurdly narrow and dizzyingly tall, and the shelves went all the way up–three stories of books, maybe more…the shelves faded smoothly into the shadows in a way that suggested they might just go on forever.” –Clay Jannon, Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore
