The #BookBridge, a Recycled Book Archway
This book shop is the home of the amazing Bridge of Knowledge, a permanent art installation built from recycled books. Visitors to the bookshop walk under the archway and enter a realm where the printed word is sacred. In this labyrinth of books and curiosities, readers always find what they need!
