Books as a design element

Many shops in Istanbul have great display design. It doesn’t matter if the shop is selling lamps, shoes, pickled vegetables, or books. Shop owners know how to create visual interest with their product. This bookshop was a striking example of tat. How they deftly designed a beautiful panorama grid of of books reminds me of how web design uses masonry grid to create visual interest. This wall of books makes a great wallpaper for a computer!
