Here at Birdcage Ink we are all about inspiration. Today we would like to share with you one of our favorite inspirational bookstores The Last Bookstore, located in Downtown Los Angeles. This bookstore is not like your average bookstore and not all books are on shelves. They are known for their book art which can be found on the second floor of the store. One of their pieces is the Book Arch which we have featured in the image above. They are also known for their book hole and organizing their books by color. As shown below:
Creating book art and amazing shelves is only one of the reasons to pay this store visit. The second floor is home to mini art galleries for local artists. They are small galleries where each artist can display and sell their work. The combination of art and literature is just the right spark of inspiration for Birdcage Ink. The store also hosts open mic nights, local bands and art walks for the community. So, the next time you're in Los Angeles and are looking for shelves of inspiration be sure to stop in The Last Bookstore, but be quick because like their motto says : "What are you waiting for? We won't be here forever."
