Washington: Elliott Bay Book Company

If you’re in Seattle you really need to check out Elliott Bay Book Company. I LOVED the open space and high ceilings of this store! The bookstore is huge, and yet it manages to feel cozy. That is my idea of a successful use of space. No one feels like browsing a warehouse full of books, right? Sometimes a large store can work against you if you’re in the mood to spend some time browsing.

I was lucky enough to photograph this store before it opened on a Sunday morning, and you know what tickled me the most? The group of people waiting outside the doors for opening time. What a great neighborhood bookstore!
