Situated in the southwestern Chinese city of Dujiangyan, in Sichuan province, this extraordinary new bookstore looks like it could have been designed by M.C. Escher himself. The amazing building features mirrored ceilings and extremely tall bookshelves in soaring C-shaped arches. Mirrored ceilings and lofty interiors create an otherworldly display space. Highly reflective black tile floors make furnishings appear to almost float.
One can’t help but be jealous of these astounding new bookstores that are popping up across China, while here in North America we can barely keep threadbare chain booksellers open.
