The Librarie Mollat, a bookstore in Bordeaux, France, has been Instagramming images of their employees and customers with book covers. Some of them are so perfectly matched it seems unreal!

Look at this gorgeous zeppelin reading room at an art museum in Prague!

Here it is under construction!

So far, I can’t find any photographs of people inside it, but I will add a link later if possible.

Thanks, Diane Westerfield!
