These books in an espresso bar near Grand Central Station are just images, but it still creates an amazing atmosphere.
Called D’espresso, the interior has been rotated 90 degrees so that one wall features herringbone-pattern wooden flooring while the opposite wall will have pendent lights protruding horizontally.
A photograph of bookshelves printed on custom tiles will line the floor, end wall and ceiling.

What is Project Bookmark? This is from their website:
Project Bookmark Canada marks the places where the real and imagined landscapes meet by placing text from imagined stories and poems in the exact, physical locations where literary scenes take place. We’re building a network of hundreds of Bookmark around the country, so that residents and visitors can read their way across Canada.
