shakespeare and company bookshop


«I created this bookstore like a man would write a novel, building each room like a chapter, and I like people to open the door the way they open a book, a book that leads into a magic world in their imaginations.» —George Whitman

One of my favorite places in Paris, it’s magical.   

Backdrop of Aziraphale’s bookshop, Good Omens, Glasgow stage production, March 2013.  

Oversized photographs were projected onto a screen to create backdrops. This helped to facilitate quick changeovers and accommodate the split stage design. This bookshop is Shakespeare & Company in Paris, chosen for the quote above the doorframe.
