Another bookshop


The Leonard French stained glass windows at the National Library are somewhat obscured these days by the book displays and a cafe on the other side of the foyer.

I love this bookshop, I imagine writing essays based on the book titles.  Just look at the ones you can see here -- Island Home, Behind the Lines, Comfort Zone, Barry Jones, The High Places, That Empty Feeling, Public Library -- I am sure I could make up something for each of those.

  1. The stain glass windows are just so beautiful. Pity to have them obscured.

  2. I love that bookshop too - and those stained glass windows.
    I really love that building - the beautiful symmetry and echoes of the Greek Parthenon.
    And of course those humungous tapestries in the foyer.
