Things We Love #4


This amazing book store, Librería El Ateneo Grand Splendid, is one of Argentina’s most beautiful book stores. It is a gorgeous converted 1920s movie theatre with theatre boxes converted into reading rooms. Amazing! For 9 more awesome bookstores repurposed from unused structures check out Flavorwire.

Happy birthday, Roald Dahl! Yesterday, September 13th is officially Roald Dahl Day. This year it also coincides with the 30th anniversary of the BFG or Big Friend Giant. We love these top 10 memorable Roald Dald quotes from Mashable.

The exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Rod Stewart’s photo shoot for the cover of his new autobiography, Rod. He is photographed by his talented wife, Penny Lancaster.

Seems like our friends at Flavorwire have done it again. As much as it pains us to see beautiful books shredded, these art installations are stunning!
