Small World Big Art

Small World Books is a haven for book, music and art lovers in Rochester, New York. Last month, the secondhand bookshop owner Rocco Pellegrino commissioned this lovely wall mural by peripatetic Italian artist/illustrator/designer Alice Pasquini for his city’s 4th annual Wall\Therapy art festival. The winsome mural was inspired by stories of Pellegrino’s youth and travels. What a fabulous combination—books and street art.
