Long time book collectors', the exhibition evolved around the idea of "an argument for looking at books instead of reading them".
Interesting proposition! I adore the wall of glossily framed covers, did Kate Spade start the original trend do you think? She does it very well. I've seen a few photographs on other blogs of similar displays in her shops.
Guilty! I do buy books at times simply because I was helplessly drawn to the covers. I have a weakness for autographed copies by my favourite authors too. However I do try to walk on by if I love the illustration but admit logically that the story is one I'll never read. How many of you experience the same tug of war when it comes to beautiful books?
I have the same copy of Franny and Zooey though mine's not as old.
