John Rylands Library, Manchester, England/This is the library I wish to turn into a home library with overstuffed seating, oriental rugs and a settee in the alcove - but don't cover up all the linenfold panelling with settee and pillows!
El Ateneo bookstore / Buenos Aires Argentina This bookstore, one of the biggest of Argentina (if not whole southamerica), is located inside a theater called Grand Splendid on Santa Fé Ave. This theater was bought by Grupo IHLSA (the owner of El Ateneo).
