The goal was to create a bookshop that doubled as a meeting place and as these images attest they seem to have done a fine job. The open well-light floor plan allows for a comfortable shopping experience as well as encouraging customers to hang around and enjoy the space.

While I was in Oxford with Stacey and Claire, we went to loads of places. By far my favorite place we visited was The Story Museum. It’s an entire exhibit dedicated to one thing: If you could become your favorite childhood story character, who would you be? I had so much fun there, I wrote a post just about it!
