We asked Brain Pickings' Maria Popova to curate a selection of books for The Library Shop, and to our surprise and enormous delight, we got something more wonderful than we could have ever imagined. As Maria explains:
"…my chronic maximalism soon kicked in — the single reading list soon became four reading lists (wisdom on writing, great reads about New York City, heart- and brain-stirring books on pets and animals, and timeless treats for young readers) and the simple tabletop display became an elaborate installation in the bookstore’s main window.”
Check out a time-lapse video of the installation process above, and visit Brain Pickings for more behind-the-scenes photos and videos of the amazing display Maria created with artist Kelli Anderson, plus info on all her book recommendations.
And visit The Library Shop to see the masterpiece yourself!
