Creative Bookstore Windows
This board is a place for independent bookstores to share decorating ideas for bookstore windows. Created by Gary Robson of Red Lodge Books & Tea, it is part of a project by the American Booksellers Association to help indie stores work together and share ideas. If you'd like to share your favorite bookstore windows, please follow this board, and then contact Gary and he'll add you as a group member.
Valentine's Day window display at Annie Bloom's Books in Portland. The chains of hearts are made from book pages. I made the big heart by covering a board in black felt and propping it up at the steepest angle I could without having books fall off. I used tape to outline the heart shape and filled it in with red books, using clear thumb tacks to hold books in place and at the right angle, then removed the tape.
Banned Books display at Annie Bloom's Books in Portland, OR. Most of the window was blacked out with trash bags, leaving a peephole to look through. The smaller signs read "We advise children and sensitive individuals to take caution, lest they be exposed to ideas that other people find questionable."
