Effective Bookstore Displays
This board is a place for independent bookstores to share merchandizing ideas: tables, signage, shelving, and more. 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 book displays, please follow this board, and then contact Gary and he'll add you as a group member.
Another version of Blind Date with a book from a library: “My local library branch started doing this “Blind Date with a Book” thing, thought you guys might like it. The shelf was full when we got there, but was like this as we were leaving. The books are wrapped in paper and have different designs on them, and then a few words vaguely describing the subject matter of the book. Things like “Drama”, “Plot Twists”, “espionage”, etc.
A great way to work with an outside organization for a display, via Wellesley Books: "Celebrating Youth Art Month with a local school art installation in the store. Inspired by an author visit with Nigerian author Ifeoma Onyefulu kindergartners from The Tenacre Country Day School made these panels with their art teacher to imitate Adire cloth designs."
Great idea for Valentine's, or to highlight baking cookbooks: "This display was attractive to more than one sense! Not only was it visually attractive, a few chocolate scented air fresheners were used to project a delightful smell and reel in the customers."
