always read something






always read something that will make you look good 
if you die in the middle of reading it. 
- p.j. o'rourke

when my friend and fellow photographer edward scott called me to say, "i think i found your paradise. we need to shoot here!" he wasn't kidding. this side of counterpoint books holds an impressive selection of vintage and hard-to-come-by books that would leave any dutiful collector in sheer paradise. i was very much inspired by the antiquity of the shop and so wanted to properly dress the part.





***a special thank you to counterpoint for giving us the pleasure to shoot here.

  3. What lovely photos! I always say that one of my 'happy places' is in book stores, especially in vintage book stores where you can sniff the books- I love that smell! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and your sweet comment! I've followed you back on GFC.
