The Last Bookstore

I’ve gotten tons of slack before for posting what I thought was cool art made of books.  What are the chances that this entire bookstore that makes art, and hallways, and secret rooms out of old books (which you can buy for $1) will go by without a comment?  Well, considering there’s been few comments on the blog recently, it’s not likely anyone from all those years ago will come and bitch, but hey, you never know.

The Last Bookstore is actually the name of this used book shop in downtown Los Angeles California.  It’s in a 22,000 square foot warehouse.  Yes, 22,000 square feet of floor space.  The volume is enough to house the over quarter of a million individual books, new and used, across two (2) different floors.  My favorite part is the arched walkways.  Those just look cool don’t they?

Natchez Trace Road

Rock Spring

Not everything in the National Park system is a park.  There are actually a handful of National parkways.  The Natchez Trace Parkway is one of them, and it winds its way 444 miles through Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee.  You can drive the whole thing in a few days.  Roadtrippers has a nice write up on things to do along the way and places to go.  Not surprisingly, some of them I’ve heard of, particularly the Windsor Ruins in Mississippi.
