Some of the Coolest Bookstores to Visit Around the World #ArtTuesday

via My Modern Met

Many things may vary from city to city, but one thing is for sure: you can always count on bookshops to be treasure troves of knowledge and entertainment. Cherished both as a place to buy reading materials and as a comfy, calm, and coffee-friendly space to relax, the bookstore has become an integral part of modern life. It’s no wonder architects have paid close attention to the potential of these scholastic sanctuaries. Some of the best bookstores offer unique experiences, just upon entering.

Though the sites carry like merchandise, their styles and histories are drastically dissimilar. Some of the shops have taken up residence in refurbished spaces like a spectacular old theatre and even a 13th century Gothic church. Other stores’ designs are completely contemporary, featuring futuristic architecture, bright color palettes, and creative, built-in lounges. Still, some simply put a creative twist on the classic and cozy bookshop aesthetic.
